Rectangular Sedimentation Tanks

Bauer Gear Motor and TB Wood’s couplings are popular choices for use on rotating flight bar (scraper/skimmer) drives in rectangular primary clarifying tanks. Torque limiters can also be used on the clarifier drivetrain, installed on the gear motor and a sprocket to the conveyor drive chain that pulls the flight bars through the tanks. Without a torque limiter, in the event of obstruction within the tank, the drive chain can “slip a sprocket” causing an overload situation and potential chain breakage.
