Twin Spring Coupling has introduced a new drive train coupling solution for the mining industry, with its patented design overcoming all the weaknesses of traditional drive train technology.
Designed as a full thrust coupling unit and encased in vulcanised neoprene, the new drive train coupling technology is scalable, allowing mining companies and suppliers to maximise machinery uptime. The highly versatile drive train coupling solution can be used in pumps submerged in water, conveyor belts with dust and debris or in typical mining equipment to reduce maintenance and breakdown issues thanks to the lubrication at manufacture as well as the neoprene encasing.
Twin Spring Coupling CEO Darren Finch describes the new coupling as the first major enhancement in 100 years of drive train technology, delivering to the mining industry a reliable coupling that also matches the unique needs of each customer thanks to its scalability.
The flexibility of the springs means it can operate up to 25 degrees, more than a universal or CV joint; being directly connected from input to output, it is the only coupling that can take full thrust, resulting in a stronger coupling product that is more flexible than anything available in the market today. The two springs in the coupling make the unit multidirectional, offering the same amount of thrust in either direction.
