Drive control for pumps and agitators

4th Quarter 2018 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

Nord drivesystems encompass optimum drive configurations to ensure optimum performance of mechanical speed control for specific applications in almost every industry. “Nord drive solutions, which meet stringent local and international quality standards, are known for reliability, energy efficiency, low noise levels, extended service life and reduced maintenance,” says business unit manager, Mark Barbour. “These modular drive systems incorporate advanced drive technology and special design features to meet the exact requirements of every operation. In the processing sector for example, Nord drivesystems are engineered with reinforced bearings and increased bearing spacing, especially for agitators, pumps and mixers used in process plants.”

Reinforced and larger output shaft bearings allow the gear unit to absorb high radial and axial bearing loads that occur during the agitating process, extending the service life of the gear units. To enhance efficiency, an agitator version with increased bearing spacing and reinforced bearings is available. Advantages of large oversized output bearings include quick assembly, large bore capacities, high radial load capacity and extended service life.

Modular Nord drivesystems are easy to expand or upgrade using a minimum of different types and sizes of components. Local assembly enables prompt delivery and the ready availability of spare parts. Included in the range are drives for torques from 10 Nm to over 250 kNm, electric motors in the power range from 0,12 to 1000 kW and frequency inverters with the required power electronics up to 160 kW. Inverter solutions are available for conventional control cabinet installations, as well as for decentralised, fully integrated drive units.
