Variable-Speed Gearbox for Industrial Applications
SETCON is an electro-mechanical variable-speed gearbox designed to control speed in pumps, compressors, fans, and blowers. With up to 97% overall Efficiency, SETCON is the most efficient variable-speed drive technology for your application and pioneering in terms of reliability.
As oil and gas prices continue to fluctuate, causing demand for production to vary at refineries, and EU Ecodesign regulations are now stricter, more and more operators are turning to controlled speed drives for their machines. What is standard in other applications, namely adjusting the power required to actual needs, is still not common practice in many areas of industry. If speed control is used, frequency converters (full-scale converters) or hydrodynamic variable speed gear couplings are usually installed. However, when high electrical drive power is required, purchase costs and efficiency losses are often high.
SETCON on the other hand combines all the benefits of conventional drive technologies, thus delivering extremely high efficiency, minimal footprint, and maximum reliability.
