Sumitomo Centrifuge Drives provide the differential speed between the bowl and the conveyor and the torque for the conveyor. The perfectly balanced housing is connected with the bowl and turns at the bowl speed. The output shaft of the centrifuge reducer is connected to the conveyor and transmits the torque which is needed for the solids transport.
Unlike the many machine shops around the country, we’re gearbox specialists with expertise in reconditioning, repairing and rebuilding a huge array of centrifuge gearbox types, including planetary gearboxes, planetary spiral bevel gearboxes and planetary gear speed reducers.
We understand that any shut down due to a centrifuge malfunction or parts shortage represents an emergency situation. With most of our customers running two or even three shifts, seven days a week, their centrifuges must operate at peak efficiency levels at all times.
