TSC500 Industrial – Universal Joints, Jaw coupling and elastomeric coupling replacement.
TSC500 ft. lbs. alternative for universal joints, jaw couplings & elastomeric 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 elastomeric coupling and universal joint has not.
Twin Spring Coupling TSC500 Industrial offers something different.
Industrial power transmission couplings are 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 elastomeric couplings (including jaw couplings) and the universal joint.
The problem with both couplings are their fundamental design weaknesses, for motion control coupling they can run fast but cannot work at over 1 degrees of misalignment before they start to wear out.
The universal joint is broken into two types, Block and Pin (also called Friction bearing) and needle bearings. Both can run at more than 4 degrees but needs constant maintenance to keep the bearing cross greased or they will wear out quickly.
Block and Pin need to be constantly in grease or the heat generated by use will lead to premature failure. Block and Pin only run at 1700 rpm and flex to 25 degrees.
Needle bearings can run at 6000 rpm and flex to 35 degrees but are more expensive to buy and maintain.
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 differences.
Lovejoy universal joint much like Ruland and Belden have the same technology so bearings that need to be maintained and replaced on an semi annual basis makes it an expensive technology to use in an industrial setting which requires 24/7/365 up time.
The one piece Twin Spring coupling does away with hubs/yokes and with internal components like elastomeric inserts and needle bearings and friction bearings. This lead to a longer lasting coupling, with less annual maintenance and less equipment downtime.
Twin Spring Coupling TSC500 Industrial has no internal components so no annual maintenance and can run at high and low speed as needed.
