20 Years of Flottweg Simp Drive®

One decanter drive - one benchmark - lots of advantages

(PresseBox) (Vilsbiburg, ) The Flottweg Simp Drive® is an energy-saving drive for decanters with a very wide range of applications for demanding separation tasks for which ongoing adaptation of operating parameters is required.

20 years of experience, 20 years of efficiency at the top

Flottweg developed the Simp Drive® in 1994. The drive concept reduces the energy consumption of the centrifuge and reliably transmits high torque. Its differential speed can also be controlled with precision. This wealth of experience, combined with our commitment to quality and value, makes our decanter drive a benchmark that has never been equaled.

Overview of the advantages and customer benefits

- High throughput performance due to high bowl speed and precisely adjusted differential speed
- Simple display and regulation of the scroll torque including overload protection
- The scroll speed and differential speed can be controlled easily, because they are independent from one another
- The Simp-Drive® for a broad range of applications in which continuous adaptation of operating parameters is required
- High efficiency due to consistently high dry substance value (DS = the higher this value, the dryer the separated solid)
- High flexibility in selection of the operating speed
- The machine can be cleared out even at a standstill, because the scroll can nevertheless still be turned (no need to dismantle system components)
- The belt drive used means low maintenance costs, improved damping, low weight, and permits higher speeds
