Vacuum / Drum Filter Drives

DBS makes bolt-in replacements for drum filter drive units. These retrofits can put a more economical and more rugged DBS drive to work in your plant performing these important functions. Like all DBS products, these retrofit drive units are covered by exceptional warranties and our 24-hour “engineer on call” service.

DBS vacuum or drum filter drives are designed to operate in rugged, demanding industrial applications such as in pulp & paper plants, chemical processing plants and alumina. DBS drives use steel spur gears, not bronze worm gears, and heavy-duty precision bearings for long life and reliability. These DBS drives typically are a “hollow-bore” design to allow vacuum, steam, or process lines to go through the drive and into the filter drum.
