We are the first choice of sugar industries for sugar mill drive
Top Gear has developed special series of Mill drives for its intended use in Sugar cane Crushers. These Mill drives are offered in two different series MD (Mill Drive) and SMD(Shaft mounted mill Drive). MD is a single drive for a mill where as SMD is a shaft mounted drive on individual rollers. These Mill drives are highly reliable and results into various key benefits to the user such as Energy efficient drives, less power consumption, Maintenance free and many more other benefits in comparison with conventional drive system. Shaft mounted mill drives can also be used for individual rollers like GRPF and TRPF in sugar industries.
The sugar industry has sugar cane crushing mill with 2 or 3 rollers and these rollers are driven by single or multiple gearbox called as Mill drive Gearbox
A mill gearbox has got typical shaft end which is Square in shape to connect a coupling to drive rollers. Milldrie gearbox consists of forced lubrication system.
Earlier in sugar industries mills were driven by a gas turbine which is connected to mill roller with two different helical gearboxes and open gearing. This type of conventional arrangement resulted into huge efficiency and power losses. After an innovation planetary gearboxes resulted into less efficiency loss and reduced power consumption.
A Foot mounted milldrive is a single gearbox that drives three rollers which are connected with each others with the help of pinions. Whereas, in case of shaft mounted mill drive the gearbox is directly mounted on individual rollers which eliminates the need of in between pinions.
