Drive Systems consistently embrace innovation to provide a superior level of variable speed drives.

The Drive System Package

The "self propulsion" lottery is replaced by a constant torque gear motor unit, fed from a variable frequency inverter giving speed adjustment and driving a ring which is clamped to the distributor arms and located in the centre well. 

Rotation Monitoring

We can provide, as an integral addition to our control system, monitoring of the distributors rotation with an additional volt free telemetry output indicating that distributor rotation is satisfactory, or has failed.

Special Features

Provision is made for automatically reverting to jet reaction propulsion should the electricity supply to the control panel fail, thus ensuring continuous treatment, albeit at the natural jet reaction speed.

Energy Saving

Energy consumption of our distributor drive systems is very important to us, and to you, and we strive, at all points of the design and installation process, to minimise the energy cost of running one of our distributor drive systems.

  1. Driving the distributor at very low speed (1-2 revolutions per hour) for control of flies with means of reverting to a higher speed for selected periods for increased retention time.
  2. Constant loading of the bed by varying the distributor speed in proportion to flow in to the works.
  3. Rotational sensing to indicate to telemetry if the distributor has stopped rotating.
  4. Alternative speed ranges to suit specific SK requirements.
  5. Extra control functions as specified, such as access door safety interlocks.
  6. Backup power supply to maintain distributor drive through mains power outages.
