The Velvet Drive CR2 was designed specifically for twin screw applications. Its counter rotating feature eliminates the need for opposite rotating engines and the resulting need for costly inventory of two types of engines or engine parts.
In addition, the CR2's "drop-center" design permits a very easy interchange of units for re-powering applications - single or twin screw.
