TSC500 Industrial 3/4″ coupling alternative for universal joint and jaw type couplings in any industrial power transmission application.
Couplings in an industrial power transmission setup have a number of issues to contend with, annual maintenance, fundamental design flaws coming from a century old technology, industry has evolved but the technology that makes up the standard coupling and universal joint has not.
Twin Spring Coupling TSC500 offers something different.
Industrial power transmission is broken into two main areas, high speed low angle of misalignment and lower speed higher angle of misalignment.
Traditionally these two needs have been service by two different couplings – Motion control couplings like jaw, elastomeric type couplings and universal joints.
The problem with both couplings are their fundamental design weaknesses, for motion control coupling they can run fast but cannot work at over 4 degrees of misalignment before they start to wear out.
The universal joint can run at more than 4 degrees but needs constant maintenance to keep the bearings and pivot point greased or they too will wear out quickly.
Worn bearings are the main factor in universal joint replacement either the pre lubricated or the greased version. The two versions of a universal joint are.
- Block and Pin or Friction bearing uni joint – Cheap, slow speed (1700rpm max) low angle 25 degrees.
- Needle bearing uni joint – More expensive, faster (6000 rpm) 35 degrees vertical misalignment.
The cheap cost of the bearing cross for most people think its a worthwhile coupling but the amount of labor involved in regards to monthly maintenance, greasing and eventual replacement means it makes it not as cheap as initially thought.
The other aspect of the bearing cross is the availability of them as well, if they aren’t in the farm supply store then the machinery cannot be used until they are replaced.
On top of that they traditionally cannot run over 8 degrees before technical issues like balancing and bearing wear become issues. In a 24/7/365 situation like industrial power transmission that’s going to create interruption and a increased annual maintenance bill.
TSC500 Industrial 3/4″ is different to universal joints and jaw couplings.
Twin Spring Coupling TSC500 Industrial has no internal components so no annual maintenance and can run at high and low speed as needed.
The integrated hubs means no split or cracked yokes to replace.
Our coupling is available in all the standard industry splines for easy replacement or retrofit for OEM. Now available in metric sizing.
Flexible up to 25 degrees.
Speeds up to 7000 rpm.
Constructed of 4140 Alloy or T6061 T6 aluminum.
