- Bowl speeds up to 4000 RPM
- Spring loaded reset torque-out assembly
- G-force: Up to 3182
The DE-1000 Gear Box Drive (GBD) centrifuge operates at bowl speeds up to 4000 RPM and is driven by a 50 HP electric motor connected by a drive belt to a gearbox through a fluid coupling. A spring-loaded torque-out assembly with manual reset protects the gearbox and motor in case of overload. A drive belt transfers motion from the gearbox to the bowl assembly. Control is provided by starters installed within explosion-proof boxes. The start/stop buttons and manual switches are within easy reach of the operator. The GBD centrifuge is designed for minimal maintenance. It includes the same stainless steel bowl as the FHD and VFD centrifuges.
Derrick DE-1000 LP (Low Profile) GBD Centrifuge
The value-priced DE-1000 LP GBD (Gear Box Drive) centrifuge provides the same robust reliability and performance capabilities as the original DE-1000 GBD. The new design utilizes a smaller footprint and improved manufacturing processes to reduce the price, while maintaining all of the same major components in order to provide up to 3180 G’s at 4000 RPM. The centrifuge is powered by a 50 HP motor via a fluid coupling which offers a low amp, soft start. The rotating assembly is coupled to a gear box, fitted complete with a spring loaded torque out assembly with manual reset. The stainless steel bowl (14" ID X 49" long) and cover are easy to clean and maintain. All start/stop buttons and manual switches are easy to reach when standing on the skid platform. Transportation brackets enable the rotating assembly to be raised to protect the bearings during shipment.
