TSC150 Industrial universal joint and jaw coupling alternative.
Flexible shaft coupling replacement for industrial power transmission coupling users. Replace any flexible coupling, whether its a Jaw, universal joint or elastomeric coupling with a maintenance free, flexible shaft coupling alternative.
Couplings in the industrial sector traditionally are broken into two sectors, the elastomeric couplings (including jaw couplings) that can only run at angles of 1/2° to 1° or less otherwise they wear out, as they cannot physically flex beyond that.
The other are the two kinds of universal joints which can normally only run at 8° anything more prematurely wears the bearings/pins within the propeller shaft of the universal joint.
The Needle bearings/Block and Pin need also to be constantly greased otherwise the ball bearings/friction block will not have any lubrication, and with them running at high speed the balls will seize in their tracks again leading to bearing failure.
Jaw couplings the spider insert wear after use of 1/2-1° and elastomeric insert compression leads to increased vibration and yokes can crack.
Twin Spring Coupling TSC150 Industrial 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.
Twin Spring Coupling is different, it replaces the entire U joint or jaw coupling – yokes, propeller/cross bearings/spider insert everything, with a simple one piece design.
By being a one piece design also means Twin Spring Coupling wont break like the yokes do in traditional uni joints.
