Our portfolio offering
Offering the best combination of electrical and mechanical engineering, our electrically controlled variable speed planetary gear is equipped with oil & gas approved servo motors. Ideal for pump and compressor operation within the power range of up to 15 MW and/or 15,000 rpm.
Speed regulation range:
70% - 105% (compressors) / 50% - 100% (pumps)
Especially designed for speed control in the lower power range, up to 10 MW or 16,000 rpm, and ideally suited to pump and compressor applications. The VoreconNX is the latest product offering within the Vorecon range of mechanical variable speed and is based on planetary gear combining hydrodynamic couplings technology.
Speed regulation range: 70% - 105%
Offering the lowest total cost of ownership, this established range of mechanical variable speed planetary gear is based on hydrodynamic torque converter technology. Also, ideal for pump and compressor operation, and further applications within the power range of up to 50 MW or 20,000 rpm.
Speed regulation range: 10% - 105%
The most economical means of controlling speed with minimal maintenance and investment, Voith geared variable speed couplings, are ideal for pump and compressor in the power range of up to 40 MW or 20,000 rpm.
Speed regulation range: 25% - 100%
Compact design coupled with reliability, our hydrodynamic coupling solution, is perfect for speed variation applications ranging from 100 kW up to 35 MW (up to 3,600 rpm). Peace of mind is assured with more than 15,000 successful global installations.
Speed regulation range: 25% - 100%
As a starting or variable speed element with or without an integrated gear stage(s) this solution is perfect for starting and turning operations, e.g. for gas turbines, test field applications and subsea.
Power range 1 -100 MW
With an integrated lock-up and torque multiplying characteristic, this hydrodynamic torque converter is ideal for the start-up of rotating equipment that requires an extreme break-away torque or high inertia acceleration.
Power range: From 5 up to 100 MW
