CARDAN SHAFT COUPLINGS
These parts are manufactured by VULKAN COUPLINGS, Germany pioneers in marine drive technology.
Furtermore, VULKAN components are used in powerplant facilities or in industrial applications as well.
VULKAN production program includes following types, most available from the manufacturing site in Germany but some common ones are also available from our warehouse in Moschato:
The VULKARDAN L highly flexible shaft couplings have been specifically developed for application in conjunction with Cardan shafts. The main components of the Vulkardan L shaft coupling are the highly flexible element as well as the inner and outer coupling parts supported against each other. The elements have high torsional flexibility and good damping properties. On top of the support, additional damping is achieved.
When the driven machine is not in line with the prime mover or when long distances have to be bridged, cardan shafts are used. With a diesel engine as the prime mover, a highly flexible shaft coupling will be required for shifting resonances and damping torsional vibration. This shaft coupling protects the Cardan shaft and the driven machinery from inadmissible vibratory loads.
- A customized, highly flexible coupling for use as a coupling in Cardan shafts
- The bearing absorbs the weight of the Cardan shaft and the forces generated by it.
- Lower operating costs as a result of maintenance-free components such as the sliding bearing
