Mining Applications

DBS supplies drive equipment worldwide for minerals processing used in:
  • High Rate Thickeners
  • Conventional Thickeners
  • Paste Thickeners

DBS drive units are heavy duty process equipment providing excellent performance at high capacities for mineral processing thickeners. DBS manufactures large capacity drive units producing maximum torques up to 12,000,000 N-m.


DBS thickeners drive units have a number of features which include an automatic lift mechanism for raising and lowering the rakes during high torque and low torque conditions. Lift mechanisms are equipped with 4-20 mA transmitters for remote indication of the position of the rake mechanism. Other features include reversing or “jogging” capability for “freeing “ the rake mechanism when stuck.
