The Baldor Controlled Start Transmission  drive has been selected by SINOHYDRO to deliver 60 million tons of gravel in the Xiang Jia Ba dam in the Chinese south-western province of Yunnan.


These reliable 2-in-1-drives from Baldor, have been specifically engineered to synchronize power from multiple drives and to control acceleration of high-inertial loads such as long-haul conveyors. As such, the Baldor CST drives are capable of delivering some 60 million tons of gravel over the 29 kilometres of tunnels at the Xiang Jia Ba dam.


This is just one of the many examples of CST units operating in various locations of the globe with only 1,433 drives currently being used in China and 200 in Australia. Baldor's CST have demonstrated their capacity to work on conveyors up to 30 kms in length, in coal, gold, iron ore, copper and gravel mining operations, cement and power generation and even bulk handling port facilities.
