FLENDER transmission units for tube mills

With a power requirement of up to 30 MW, tube mills belong to amongst the largest work machines. They crush and pulverize minerals, ore, coal, or cement clinkers through impact and friction. The horizontally-positioned tube mills are designed with a diameter of up to 15 meters and a length of up to 20 meters.

In case of tube mills one should distinguish between different drive variants. Siemens specializes in the following:

  • Single-pinion drives
  • Central Drives
  • Girth gear with power split

Siemens offer the complete drive system for all three variants: Motor, transmission unit, coupling, sprocket and gear rim, as well as auxiliary drive, safety devices and diagnosis systems.
