Materials and Resources
The use of natural resources for economic growth from pulp and paper production, metallurgy and glass-making to sugar and rubber processing requires equipment that can stand up to the harshest conditions, providing the power and control to get the job done right.
High availability in a rough environment is important so that continuous processes can run smoothly. That is why plant engineers and users need reliable automation partners. You can rely on Bosch Rexroth to provide complete system solutions that can be used in processing a multitude of products.
Direct drives are ideal, not only for the bucket wheel itself, but for many of the main functions on a Stacker/Reclaimer. Their specific advantages and high torque capacity make them well-suited for heavy duty applications.
At EECV, Hägglunds direct drives are also installed for slewing and long traveling on some of the Stacker/Reclaimers; on three of the four older stacker/reclaimers the slewing drives have been changed to direct drives, replacing the electric motor with brake, gearbox and open gear stage. Today Hägglunds CB 840 motors with Bica brake successfully drive the pinions for slewing. The long travel drives on two of the bucket wheel reclaimers have been fitted with Hägglunds CA 50 motors.
Govert de Bruin, Mechanical Manager at EECV, says “These drive systems offer reliability and torque. They are low maintenance, have a long life span and we always receive excellent support.”
