The Vorecon is a hydrodynamic variable speed planetary gear. The Vorecon controls the speed of pumps, compressors and fans. Your driven machine operates at the speed demanded by the process. The result is tremendous energy savings in comparison to throttle or bypass control systems. The Vorecon installation can be amortized in just a few years of service.
The Vorecon combines reliable mechanical design with hydrodynamic power transmission. Hydrodynamic power transmission is wear-free. This helps the variable-speed gear to achieve a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 48 years. System reliability exceeds 99.98%. Your operation will run for a very long time without unplanned downtime, boosting the productivity of your system.
Are you planning a project with variable speed drive in the power range 1 to 50 MW? Please contact us and together we can look for the best solution. Jointly, we can consider all of the costs incurred over the planned system service life. We prefer to work through the cost calculation collaboratively with you in a team setting so that you are comfortable with the methodology.
