Central mill drive

More drive, lower running costs

Harsh working conditions and high dust concentrations in the production of cement, limestone and gypsum place high demands on the drive system In the case of central drives, the mill is driven from the end face. Since there is no girth gear transmission, relatively large gear units are required even for low power rating ranges. The FLENDER load sharing gear units such as our DUORED 2 and  FLENDER planetary gear units such as Planurex 2 and Planurex 3 series, offer the high power capacities demanded.

PLANUREX 3 central drives (HCCP) are low-maintenance and reliable. Their compact design offers a good price-performance –ratio. Moreover the less space requirement leads to cost savings when designing mills and their supporting structures.
