With a strong emphasis on heavy process industries like metals processing and mining, David Brown Gear Industries demonstrates skill and experience in delivering custom gearbox drive solutions.
David Brown draws upon the abundance of design knowledge of generations of skilled engineers combined with the latest design manufacturing techniques and technologies that make industrial processes faster, more efficient and more cost effective.
When it comes to engineering and specifying high speed gearboxes for critical applications, such as pumps, compressors and generators, the highest standards are required. David Brown is able to meet these standards for the energy and petrochemical industries, giving it an enviable reputation.
Advanced high speed gearboxes operating to 50,000rpm and beyond are supplied to both OEMs and end users within the most competitive timescales through pre-engineering of adaptable units to speed delivery.
Matching performance to application, David Brown can integrate custom lubrication and cooling systems to ensure trouble-free service. These vital features are then extended to the pump or driving motor to reduce space requirements and minimise pipe runs. Quality manufacturing is backed by comprehensive in-house test facilities and a global service and repair capability that ensures guaranteed products.
David Brown has supplied many units operating at powers up to 54MW or 72,414HP and speeds up to 50,000rpm. Their extensive reference list details experience in many applications including:
- Generator sets (offshore and land based)
- Compressors (offshore and land based)
- Fire pumps (offshore)
- Water injection pumps (offshore)
- Lift pumps (offshore)
- Boiler feed pumps (power stations)
- De-scaling pumps (steelworks)
