Conventional ThickenersSolid Liquid Separation

The torque capability of a thickener drive is specified as Duty Rating being the maximum mechanism design strength or the 100% setting on the Torque Control Box. The torque, in turn, depends on a K factor and the thickener diameter based on the following formula: Torque (in Nm) = 14.6*K*D 2 (in meters)
