TSC300 Agriculture 1″ Farming U-joint and jaw coupling alternative for use in driveshaft, farm equipment and attachments.
Sick of having to re-grease your uni joints every 8 hours?
Replacing bearings all the time?
Cracked yokes to replace?
Couplings in the agricultural industry have a number of issues to contend with, annual maintenance, constant greasing, hostile environment, replacement components, downtime during critical times of the year (planting, harvesting) Twin Spring Coupling offers something different.
It replaces the entire coupling, yokes/hubs, propeller/cross bearings everything, with a simple one piece design. It also replaces a entire jaw coupling as well.
- Farm Equipment.
- PTO coupling attachments.
- Work vehicles.
Designed with no internal components like bearings, means our coupling is truly maintenance free, making it impervious to water, mud, dust, dirt and other contaminants. This saves time and on annual maintenance bills.
The universal joint, either block and pin or needle bearing wear in two ways, first the daily use of the product and secondly and more critically the angle at what the coupling joint is being used at, as the higher the angle of misalignment during use the more the bearings will wear.
The Block and pin while the cheaper universal joint has 3 main issues,1. low speed (only able to run at 1750 rpm) and 2. Low angle of use (Maximum of 25 degrees) and 3. Constantly needing to be greased otherwise it will fail and need replacing.
The Needle bearings while able to run at up to 6000 rpm and have a maximum angle of 35 degree is also a lot more expensive and still have to be greased to prevent seizing.
This means increased vibration which can result in equipment damage and/or bearing failure. Worn bearings are the main factor in universal joint replacement either the pre lubricated or the greased version.
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 etc. then the machinery cannot be used until they are replaced.
TSC300 Agriculture uni joint replacement range.
By being a one piece design also means Twin Spring Coupling TSC300 Agriculture 1″ shaft wont break like the yokes do in traditional uni joints. The yokes while substantial where they connect to the input/output shafts are a lot smaller where they connect to the universal cross joint.
This makes it a weak point and with the tough work they experience farming are prone to cracking which means the yoke will have to be replaced meaning it has to be removed and wait for the new yoke to arrive and then reinstallation, which is both time and money.
Our coupling is available in all the standard industry splines and PTO splines for easy replacement or retrofit for OEM.
Flexible up to 45 degrees.
Speeds of up to 7000 rpm.
Constructed of 4140 Alloy.
