Self-contained linear drive offers overload protection

The closed loop differential pump (CLDP) servo drive is setting new standards in hydraulics: unlike electromechanical shafts, this self-contained linear drive offers a high level of overload protection and wear-free operation. Power and position control are simple and precise. The servo drive is compact and features easy system integration. It can be used for all […]

Fluid coupling doubles mine

The CPC 1600 armored face conveyor (AFC) coupling by Voith is said to have enabled a 350 000 tonne per month coal production increase at the Sandaogou coal mine in China’s Shaanxi province. The coupling can transmit up to 1600 kW continuously – 60% more power than with standard fluid couplings of comparable installation footprint. […]

New pump testing facility for clients in Zambia, DRC

EC Mining, the new Grindex submersible pump distributor in Zambia and the DRC, has established a testing facility to test up to 25 repaired pumps per week, depending on their size. The facility will service the company’s clients in these two countries and will play an important role in in delivering pump repairs to OEM […]

Variable speed planetary gearboxes for Brazil

Voith is supplying more large gearboxes for the oil fields in the giant pre-salt cluster in the Atlantic Ocean. Having to equip four floating production storage and offloading vessels (FPSOs) in the Cessao Onerosa oil field off the coast of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Petrobras Netherlands resorted to the reliability of Voith’s Vorecon variable speed […]

Soft-start fluid coupling protects belt conveyors

The TVVS soft-start fluid coupling is said to accelerate belt conveyors smoothly in the most demanding and stringent materials handling and processing applications. The development of the constant-fill fluid coupling type TVVS as a genuine soft-start device is based on Voith’s global experience and know-how gained over more than a century. The coupling transmits power […]

Fluid coupling for mining belt conveyors

The latest fluid coupling technology from Voith, developed for the drives on open-pit mining belt conveyors, features an XL blade wheel profile. the Turbobelt 780 TPXL coupling transmits twice the power previous couplings of similar size could achieve. It is designed for six and eight-pole induction motors operating at speeds of 900 to 1200 rpm. […]

Variable speed planetary gearbox

The results speak for themselves: The latest survey taken in 2013 confirms the high reliability of the variable speed planetary gearbox “Vorecon” from Voith. The mean time between failures (MTBF) of the Vorecon is an impressive 48 years, and its statistical reliability of 99,98% is just as notable. This translates into reduced overall operating costs […]
