Our Commitment to Service

Get the finest low-speed, high-torque equipment or unique drive applications paired with world-class customer service and expert support from our engineering team.

Spare Parts and Aftermarket Service

The Operation and Maintenance manual supplied with your DBS Manufacturing drive unit includes a parts breakdown. In many cases, you can also find a manufacturer’s part number which you can use to source parts locally. If you need additional support with spare parts, troubleshooting, maintenance, or repair of your drive unit, please contact our engineering team.

Torque Test

To ensure superior performance under the most severe service conditions, DBS has built a dynamometer for dynamic load tests. Our in-house dynamometer can perform witnessed clarifier drive unit tests as an adjunct or to save the expense of a field torque test. For on-site testing, you can rent our portable field test dynamometer or a DBS engineer can perform the test for you.


DBS offers technical training to our customers, sales representatives, and OEMs. We also offer sales training. Courses are offered on demand at our factory. On-site training and job site specific training is also available.

Turnkey Installation

DBS will keep your clarifier or thickener moving with our professional turnkey services for installing new or retrofit drive units. For retrofits, the DBS team will remove your old failed drive unit, install a new DBS drive, and then adjust and align your clarifier or thickener to the original manufacturer's specification. Our engineers will also make any structural modifications or repairs necessary to get your equipment working 100% when it's returned to service. After installation of your new or retrofit drive unit, DBS will keep your machinery up and running with a comprehensive stock of spare parts and our unique 24-hour "Engineer on Call" service. With this service, field engineers and field technicians are available for on-site visits to make any adjustments or repairs.
