THE DRIVE UNIT IS THE MECHANICAL CORE OF CLARIFIER OR THICKENER THAT PRODUCES LOW SPEED HIGH TORQUE ROTATION OF THE SLUDGE COLLECTOR ARMS TO PERMIT POSITIVE SLUDGE COLLECTION AND REMOVAL FOR PROPER UNIT OPERATION.
SPS DESIGNS, MANUFACTURES, ASSEMBLES AND TESTS THE DRIVE UNITS FOR OUR EQUIPMENT AND ALSO OFFERS REPLACEMENT DRIVE UNITS FOR AGING CLARIFIERS.
SPS DRIVE UNITS ARE RELIABLE, HEAVY DUTY, LOW MAINTENANCE AND VERY OPERATOR FRIENDLY.
SPS DRIVE UNITS
- Reliable for long lasting trouble free operation
- Heavy duty construction and withstand overturning moments
- Modern INTUITIVE design and manufacturing processes
- Low maintenance & Operator friendly
- Shaft drive for bridge supported units
- Dual shaft drive for concentric shafts and mixers
- Cage drive column supported units
- Dual cage drive for concentric cages and mixers
- Motor directly coupled to the primary speed reducer.
- High efficiency primary and secondary speed reducing units, conforming to AGMA Standards.
- Main spur gear with simply supported pinion designed in conformance with the AGMA rating for 20 years of continuous operation.
- Precision bearing of 4-point fully contoured raceway hardened to minimum 55 RC capable of withstanding overturning moment from uneven loading, and built in unison with the main gear. The balls are separated with plastic spacers. The bearing is equipped with a plug allowing replacement of the balls without disassembly of the unit.
- The bearing’s B10 life is in the range of 100 years!
- The precision bearings/main gear are commercially manufactured by companies utilizing a state-of-the-art technology in large diameter bearing production as utilized in other applications including cranes, excavators, loaders, wind turbine, many more.
- Steel drive base is designed for strength with proper material thickness to assure rigidity and fatigue strength for proper support of the bearing ring while avoiding brittle failures and potential bad batch/pours.
- Direct Mechanical torque measuring and indicating device with factory set limit switches allows transmission of a remote signal in case of impending excessive load.
- Very short list of spare parts.
