Cane sugar

It’s proven that planetary gearboxes have a much higher mechanical rating compared to parallel shaft gearboxes. The cane sugar industry is getting more and more aware of these advantages:

  • The reduction of floor space compared to conventional drives is almost 50%
  • If the gearbox is used as direct drive (and thus eliminating all accessories between open gears and secondary gearbox) an additional power saving of 5% can be achieved
FLSmidth MAAG Gear can supply gear units for up to 4200kNm.

Beet sugar / Fish presses / Dewatering presses / Double screw pumps

FLSmidth MAAG Gear has in-depth understanding of designing robust gearboxes with split torque design for the utilization for mixers with specific attention to seals and H1 lubrication oils.

Toghether with a known OEM for sugar presses we have developed a complete sturdy series of torque split gearboxes starting from 100 to 1400kNm to drive double screw presses, expellers or similar equipments.

 

In addition we have proven experience in design and manufacturing of fabricated girth gears, gear rings and pinions which can be used on extraction towers.

Hydro turbines and pumps

Axial flow turbines (kaplan)
FLSmidth MAAG Gear has in-depth understanding in designing of robust gearboxes and ready to supply customized solutions as for example (and next to other design features) single stage gearboxes with reinforced thrust bearings to absorb axial loads from the turbine.

Radial flow turbines / Tydal turbines
With its long knowledge in heavy duty applications and profound knowledge in planetary gearbox design FLSmidth MAAG Gear is ready to step into new fields by proposing new alternatives to this sector.

Pumps
FLSmidth MAAG Gear has in-depth understanding in designing of robust gearboxes to drive reliabely any kind of pump according to API standards.
Thanks to its flexibility in design and engineering FLSmidth MAAG Gear has delivered several customized designs to the industry.

Wind mills

DPPV Series
DPPV Gearboxes are purely planetary gearboxes designed for the specific use as speed increaser in Wind mills to drive a generator.

 

The outer shape of the DPPV gears with integrated torque arm and auxiliary drive for lube pump corresponds to the classic design used by most of the planetary gear manufacturers. The DPPV has an overall ratio (i) of approx.. 76 which is adaptable at request. 

Internally the DPPV distinguishes itself by far from all other designs. FLSmidth MAAG Gear applies with the PV stage its unique technology for epicyclical gears, which only a few other gearbox manufacturer are capable to apply. The PV technology allows a torque split within two planetary stages which allows building the gearbox as compact and reliable as possible. This is for FLSmidth MAAG Gear a common technology used also for the largest vertical roller mill gearboxes used in the cement industry. Today’s reference for a PV stage goes up to a rated power of 7.5MW and FLSmidths’ design capability goes up to 15MW.

Sun pinion and planet wheels made of alloy steel case hardened and ground with the necessary longitudinal and profile modification. Annulus made of heat-treated steel with accurately cut teeth. All shafts are bedded on abundant dimensioned anti friction bearings. The sturdy design covers main requests of highest compactness, small foot print and highest reliability of gears and bearings. 

Pressurized coal injection

FLSmidth MAAG Gear has developed a complete serie of combined bevel planetary gearboxes for the specific use on coal mills or pulverizers following state of the art production and explosion protection standards according to ATEX or NAMUR.


 

Rolling mills (cold or warm) and coilers

FLSmidth MAAG Gear has in-depth understanding in designing of robust gearboxes with split torque design for the utilization of rolling mills or coilers, operating at variable speed.

Thanks to its flexibility in design and engineering we have delivered several designs to the industry. 

 

Bunberry mixers

FLSmidth MAAG Gear has depth understanding in design of robust gearboxes with split torque design for the utilization on bunberry mixers, operating at variable speed.

FLSmdith MAAG Gear has developed different variants of the Temperex series to drive different equipment.
 

Melt pumps

The SPU series has been specialy designed and manufactured to drive large gear pumps used as booster on large twin screw compounders (type ZSK) for the production of pellets. The compact design and proven longevity of this gearbox makes it still the most favorite solution for known plastic manufacturer.

Pulping (drum dryers)

FLSmidth MAAG Gear has a proven experience in design and manufacturing of fabricated girth gears and pinions which can be used on pulping machines.

With some small adaptation we can select and adapt our bevel helical gearboxes of the temprex series for the use of a pulper drive.

 

Yankee dryers

Thanks to the flexibility in design, engineering and production FLSmdith MAAG Gear is able to provide customized solutions based on customers specifications. For example knowing the Yankee dryer shaft in detail and the torque transmission we can supply a right sized gearbox with fully customized hollow shaft in order to match the existing cylinder.

 

Apron feeders & conveyors

Planetary gearboxes are the preferred match for the demanding application with apron feeders, characterized by extreme torque fluctuations and heavy shock loads. FLSmidth MAAG Gear has in-depth understanding in design of robust gearboxes and is ready to supply customized solutions next to the basic design of a planetary gearbox with hollow shaft and shrink disc.

In addition we offer robust helical and bevel helical gearboxes for long travel conveyors, operating at variable speed.
