TSC500 mine coupling replaces universal joint and other flexible couplings in any driveshaft, steering and any other power transmission requirement you may have.
Flexible couplings in the mining industry have a number of issues to contend with, annual maintenance, hostile work environment including water, dust and debris, lost productivity due to unscheduled coupling failure.
Twin Spring Couplings TSC500 Mine simple 1 piece design replaces the entire U joint, yokes, propeller/cross bearings everything, with a simple one piece design.
- Conveyor belts
- Mining vehicles
- Plant Equipment
Designed with no internal components like bearings, means our coupling is truly maintenance free.
This makes the TSC500 mine coupling impervious to water, mud, dust, dirt and other contaminants. This saves time and on annual maintenance bills. Time means money and downtime especially unscheduled downtime can be very costly.
Do we have the people and parts to fix the problem? If not how long will it take, and in some instances losing $1,000 to $10,000’s per hour makes cheap couplings not that cheap.
Add to that the annual maintenance bill for greasing and replacing worn universal joints to keep them from breaking down is another cost both in component costs but again lost productivity.
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 stock with the supplier etc then the machinery cannot be used until they are replaced.
By being a one piece design also means Twin Spring Coupling TSC500 Mine wont break like the yokes do in traditional uni joints.
Our coupling is available in all the standard industry splines for easy replacement or retrofit for OEM.
Flexible up to 25 degrees Under load (35 degrees not under load)
Lower maintenance cost, improves flexibility, 1 piece design makes Twin Spring coupling the right choice to replace your old universal joints
