Klargester BA/BA-X/BB BioDisc Motor/Gearbox (Panasonic)




Direct Drainage Reviews

The Klargester BA/BA-X/BB BioDisc Motor/Gearbox (Panasonic) is a genuine Klargester BioDisc spare part and comes securely wrapped and with a keyway steel. This is the direct replacement for the Vipa Motor/Gearbox.


This combined motor/gearbox unit is supplied as a fully-enclosed unit with a grease-filled gearbox for smooth operation. When installed correctly onto your Klargester BioDisc, cool air must be allowed to circulate over the surface of the motor and under no circumstances should the motor be submerged in liquid.

Please Note

If you are purchasing this motor to replace a Vipa Motor Gearbox that was purchased between October 2010 - January 2013, you will also need to buy the external motor capacitor box separately for fitting, if you do not already have one.

During this time period the capacitor was housed within the motor/gearbox, but the new Panasonic motors do not come with a capacitor, so you will need to fit the External Motor Capacitor box (which has a capacitor inside), mount the box on the wall of your tank and wire it into your motor and your power supply.

If your previous motor was purchased outside of this time frame (and therefore you already have a capacitor separately to your motor/gearbox), the capacitor should be either in with the isolation switch or on the wall in the junction box, depending how it was installed. As long as this capacitor is working, then you should not need to purchase the Capacitor Kit alongside.
