Cyclo Centrifuge Drives

There are four different main types available that allow all kinds of drive systems for each application:

  • ZS as single stage Cyclo Drive centrifuge reducer for most applications when the conveyor turns faster than the bowl.
  • ZSPN and ZSPV are double stage centrifuge reducers with a Cyclo Drive stage and a planetary stage for higher ratios. ZSPN provides the conveyor slower than the bowl; ZSPV provides the conveyor faster than the bowl.
  • ZSPR is a very special double stage centrifuge reducer with a Cyclo Drive stage and a differential planetary stage. This version allows variable relative speed over the full control range of the motor with slower as well as faster conveyor.

Also available are purely planetary centrifuge reducers ZSP as doublestage and triple stage design. These are mainly used for applications with high bowl speed and high differential speed.
