Ideal for new installations or retrofits, our Friction Springs provide electrical substations with base isolation. Compact and maintenance-free, these devices consist of fire-resistant spring steel and outer and inner mating rings with conical contact surfaces. They also don't require cranes or lif…
Depending on your application, you may need a two- or three-piece Shrink Disc design to create a secure shaft-hub connection. Let’s explore some of their key similarities and differences to help you select the right one.
With their torsionally flexible and maintenance friendly design, elastomer jaw couplings are an excellent coupling choice for heavy-duty machinery. Flexible in all directions, these couplings compensate for angular, parallel and axial shaft misalignments in connected machines. They also transmit torque via elastic buffers, which come in synthetic rubber or polyurethane. These buffers dampen shocks and torsional vibrations and are also resistant to oil. Thanks to this design, elastomer jaw couplings shift any dangerous torsional vibrations from machinery to rotational speed, avoiding any negative effects. They’re also a great fit for many heavy-duty applications, such as turbines, compressors and crane winches. Watch our latest video to learn more.
If you want to use Locking Assemblies under bending loads, then it’s important to select a model that is designed for just that.
