Dana Launches Brevini S-Series for Biogas and Wastewater Applications
February 8, 2022
Dana Incorporated recently launched Brevini S-Series industrial planetary gearboxes specifically engineered to address the durability and reliability requirements of biogas production and wastewater treatment facilities.
Available now, Brevini S-Series gearboxes with maximum output torques up to 290 kNm are customized to drive the mixing systems used in digesters to facilitate heat transfer and keep temperatures uniform for the production of fuel-quality biogases.
Brevini S-Series gearboxes have been installed in hundreds of biogas plants throughout Europe and the Asia-Pacific region over the past 10 years. They are configured with water- and corrosion-resistant seals to propel drag chains and flights in the sedimentation tanks of wastewater treatment plants, and they meet strict international standards for preventing the ignition of flammable gases.
Providing maximum output torques of up to 140 kNm, Brevini S-Series gearboxes for wastewater treatment plants are custom-built with corrosion-resistant designs, special seals allowing for continuous submersion, and a high reduction range for improved torque.
“Dana has made a deep, robust commitment to supporting environmental responsibility in our operations, supply chain, and the products we create,” said Jeroen Decleer, senior vice president, Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems for Dana Incorporated. “Brevini S-Series gearboxes contribute to our sustainability initiatives by playing an integral role in the production of renewable biogases that reduce the reliance on fossil fuels.”
Dana engineers and produces Brevini S-Series gearboxes at technology centers in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and Yancheng, China. Dana’s resources in China strategically support the country’s movement toward sustainability, which includes a predicted tenfold increase in biogas production volumes over the next decade according to China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDC). This growth will be further propelled by initiatives promoting energy autonomy and greenhouse gas reduction outlined in China’s 14th Five-Year Plan adopted in March.
