When Redcar Bulk Terminal decided to replace an obsolete unit Radicon were called in to engineer a drop in replacement. With very high downtime costs, it was essential to organise the work to cause the minimum of disruption.
Nylicon Gear Couplings
Radicon nylicon gear couplings are able to compensate for all types of shaft misalignment. They are easy to assemble and require no maintenance which ensures they provide a high quality service in the most inhospitable environments and require absolutely no maintenance.
Type 600, are available in three sizes and are ideal for small power drives with bores sizes up to 55mm diameter and a basic rated torque up to 463 Nm.
Thermosetting plastic sleeves provide non-conductive assemblies. Staggered internal teeth ensure uniform loading and an internal central buffer ring between the two hubs promotes axial location giving protection to the gear teeth.
They compensate for all types of shaft misalignment and allow a small amount of end float. Nylicon couplings are easy to assemble and require no maintenance giving low cost reliable service under the most arduous conditions of weather, atmospheric pollution or humidity.
|Bore Sizes:||Up to 55 mm (2.2 in.)|
|Unit Torque:||Up to 463 Nm (98,200 lb.in.)|
