TSC150 Industrial 3/8″ power transmission couplings replacements for industrial coupling users.
Uni joints and Jaw couplings replaced with a simple 1 piece design coupling by Twin Spring Coupling.
Couplings in the industrial sector traditionally are broken into two sectors, the elastomeric couplings that can only run at angles of 1° or less otherwise they wear out, as they cannot physically flex beyond that, normally they run at 1/2°.
The other are universal joints which can normally only run at 8° otherwise prematurely wearing the bearings within the propeller shaft of the universal joint.
The bearings need also to be constantly greased otherwise the ball bearings will not have any lubrication, and with them running at high speed the balls will seize in their tracks again leading to bearing failure.
The bearing will start to wear which means the bearings will become loose and that creates vibration and with continual wear the bearings will fail.
Jaw couplings the spiders wear after use of 1-2° and yokes can crack.
Twin Spring Coupling TSC150 Industrial couplings can run up to 25° without needing to be lubrication, and at low angles of misalignment and comparable high speeds to traditional industrial couplings.
Ball bearings being very precise instruments also need to be contained to ensure infiltration by any foreign contaminants, as things like water, mud, dust or dirt will again cause the ball bearings to seize in their tracks and this means bearing failure.
Being used at high speed for long periods of time produces heat and that can cause the ball bearings to seize inside the bearings leading to premature failure.
The other downside to a universal joint are the yokes which the bearings are contained in, the coupling piece of the yokes are quite tough but the section that contains the bearings not so much as they have to hold the bearings.
This is a weak point as the bearings are usually less than 2″ across so the machining to contain the bearings is a lot smaller than the rest of the yoke, which means the likely of them cracking is that much higher.
Cracking leads to catastrophic failure and replacement of both the yoke and universal joint is assured. This makes it an expensive repair as with the price of the yoke and universal joint, it is usually cheaper just to replace everything, both yokes and the propeller joint.
How is the Twin Spring Coupling TSC150 Industrial different.
it replaces the entire U joint, yokes, bearing cross everything, with a simple one piece design.
By being a one piece design also means Twin Spring Coupling TSC150 Industrial wont break like the yokes do in traditional uni joints.
