• The existing rotor was not operational
• Continual shaft, chain, sprocket and bearing failures were the norm
• Advanced corrosion of the rotor was evident
• The media had broken up and was falling off the rotor
• We replaced three RBC rotors with one single unit. TWS rotors have a high specific area per unit volume. This feature allows easy upgrades to existing plants without changes to concrete tanks associated with the RBC section of the plant. TWS plants have a smaller footprint and less mechanical equipment than their competition.
• A new rotor, with a epicyclic geared motor was supplied
• New bearings and media were supplied along with a new shaft and HDG steel framework
• The new rotor now requires a lot less maintenance as the new geared motor no longer uses chain drives.
• The gearbox is generously sized and can handle restarts from power outages
• The new media is arranged in replaceable modules such that individual modules can be replaced without replacing the entire media pack
