Vertical Roller Mills
The criticality of the power generation industry means that gear system reliability is key. Designed in close cooperation with mill manufacturers, the vertical roller mill drive series demonstrates long bearing life, high power density and an optimised product lifecycle.
Delivering power, durability and reliability – even under extreme conditions, David Brown Santasalo vertical roll mill gears operate efficiently to ensure maximum production time.
Horizontal Ball Mill Drives
We can provide all elements of a mill drive system as a fully optimised solution to suit your process exactly, or individual components as required.
- Mill drive gearboxes
- Girth gears
Engineered in segments, starting from two and with no upper limit, we can supply girth gears up to 14 metres diameter. With interchangeable segments for easy repair and maintenance, girth gears have delivered longstanding, reliable operation for decades.
Skilled management of the stress relieving process is of utmost importance in the production of an accurate and stable final girth gear and we can provide this .
Horizontal Ball Mill Pinions
Using their global, in-house manufacturing capabilities, David Brown Santasalo deliver high torque, high precision integral and non-integral mill pinion gears for horizontal ball mills in power generation applications. Pinion gears can be supplied individually or as part of a fully optimised horizontal ball mill drive.
David Brown Santasalo has an optimal drive solution for conveyors in wood yards. A wide range of accessories, including backstops, motor mounts, V-belts and belt guards are available for the conveyor drive units.
Integrated roll drives
David Brown Santasalo’s roll drives are a perfect example of integrated drive solutions for paper machinery. Drive units for both suction and deflection-controlled rolls in press sections and calendars are available with special design gearing. These designs lower noise and vibration levels and ensure reliability, even at the highest machine speeds.
High Speed Gearboxes: HX Series
The HX series combines availability maximising features such as enhanced performance, packaging flexibility and a five-year warranty to deliver complete assurance.
The HX series’ flexible gear case configuration allows for the positioning of oil inlets at either side, or at the end of the gear case to minimise pipe runs. In addition, three standard instrumentation packages are available to suit our customers’ specific requirements.
Stacker Reclaimer Drives
David Brown Santasalo engineers, manufactures and provides service support for stacker reclaimer gearboxes in the bulk materials handling process.
These enormous machines are crucial to the power generation industry’s bulk materials handling process and reliable, high quality gear systems are key.
Designed specifically for the cement industry, David Brown Santasalo’s range of low speed, high torque centre drive transmissions feature two layshaft ‘split torque’ technology to deliver the optimum drive solution for primary and finish grinding applications.
In addition to two layshaft drive models, we can supply bespoke power transmission solutions to meet our customers’ specific needs.
