Efficient and compact – FLENDER Gear Units for Sugar Mills

    FLENDER gear units are used in the manufacture of sugar from sugar beet and sugar cane and through their optimised design help to save energy. Carefully thought-through drive systems are space-savingly dimensioned.

    For the core component of cane-sugar production, the mill drive, FLENDER supplies, amongst other things, DUORED or PLANUREX type power-splitting planetary gear units. Slow-running PLANUREX type planetary gear units are used for diffuser drives. FLENDER gear units are also found on conveyor belts, crushing machines and turbines used for electric power generation.

    FLENDER gear units are also used in the extraction of sugar from sugar beet. So, for example, there is the pulp press equipped with up to eight FLENDER PLANUREX type planetary gear units at a time and frequency-controlled FLENDER gear units for countercurrent beet cossette mixers.
