Manufacturing the Simp Drive Gearbox - Video
Precise, powerful and built to last. That is Flottweg’s very own Simp Drive gearbox. 100 % German Engineering – 100 % Flottweg. Manufactured in Flottweg’s production plant, it can easily handle a torque up to 40.000 newton metres. The Simp Drive regulates the differential speed between the decanter bowl and decanter scroll depending on the prevailing scroll torque. The bowl speed and differential speed can be adjusted independently of one another during ongoing operation. This is guaranteed by a special transmission mechanism of Flottweg’s Simp Drive (special planetary epicyclic gear unit).
