Bonfiglioli Transmission are custom-engineering advanced technology HD drives for clean, robust service in vertically mounted applications to aerate or mix liquids.
Bonfiglioli’s HD drive series are a new generation of large industrial drives engineered to ensure reliability and torque densities to record values, said the Managing Director of Bonfiglioli Transmission, Mr Malcolm Lewis.
Bonfiglioli HD drive combinations are particularly suited to conveyor drives and materials handling applications across a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, mineral processing, primary processing, resources, energy and water and waste water, said Mr Lewis.
He advised that the aerator drives have been designed for wastewater plant treatment but many features can be utilised for other process applications involving minerals processing liquids, or food and beverage manufacturing.
The 55kW six-pole motors with HDP helical parallel series drive features dry well construction and OP2 lubrication pump and is an example of cost-effective integrations embedded in one of Bonfiglioli’s custom-engineered HD drives.
Excellent torque distribution and a rugged capacity to cope with the shock and impact of intermittent loads are both features of Bonfiglioli HD drive combinations.
Finite Element Analysis and Multi Body Simulations were conducted to identify stress patterns on each of the main components and to test system structural stiffness, gear geometry, shaft deflection and extended gear and bearing lifetime.
