Hydraulic Clarifier Drives

Hydraulic Powered Bridge Supported Drive Units (Type-H)
Technically advanced hydraulic powered Type H drives are available in a wide range of operating torques and output speeds. Power is introduced through a standard “C-Face” mounted motor connected to a low speed, high torque hydraulic power system with integral valves, pump, hydraulic motor, filter and appurtenances fully enclosed in a 304 Stainless Steel housing / oil reservoir.

All Kusters Water clarifier and thickener drives are designed in accordance with the latest AGMA and / or ISO standards to ensure the absolute highest quality. Assembly and inspection of every unit is performed at Kusters facility prior to shipment.

Overload Protection
Precise torque monitoring is a major advantage of the Type H drive system. The overload system includes alarm and motor cut-off switches that are activated by an increase in operating pressure in the hydraulic system that is directly proportionate to the torque load on the rotating mechanism. Each unit includes a maximum torque pressure relief valve which takes the place of the less accurate mechanical shear pins and allows the unit to gradually stall without damage to the rotating mechanism. Torque is monitored with a liquid filled gauge that reads in actual operating torque (Ft-lbs) or (N-m).
