    Enhance Centrifuge Performance When You Retrofit and Upgrade

    Upgrade for Extended, Optimal Performance

    Get the most out of your centrifuge with a retrofit from Centrisys. Save on maintenance and energy costs while increasing uptime, performance, life expectancy and efficiency when you replace your old gearbox drive with a Viscotherm Hydraulic Scroll Drive.

    Do you have a new centrifuge where performance is limited by torque or an older machine that needs to keep running but is not delivering the performance needed? Upgrading your centrifuge with a state-of-the art Viscotherm Hydraulic Scroll Drive will save on long-term expenses and improve the performance of your process. Centrisys has experience with service and repair with these gearbox drives:

    • Planetary - from 2 to multiple stages
    • Cyclo-Gear
    • Simp-Drive®

    Backdrive Controllers:

    • Eddy Current
    • DC Motors
    • AC Motors

    One of the largest food processors in the U.S. reached its ROI in just two years when upgrading 50 centrifuges with a Viscotherm Hydraulic  Scroll Drive. Call us to determine if a retrofit or an upgrade is an option for your centrifuge.
