Hydraulic Pump Coupling
This manufacturer supplies special vehicles to airports. Some of the auxiliary equipment is hydraulically driven. The coupling that they were using to drive the hydraulic pump wasgoed failing on a regular fundament. Our customer needed to eliminate this high maintenance voorwerp.
Wij visited and reviewed the application. The power requirements were within the normal range of the existing coupling. It became apparent that the failures were resulting from excessive misalignment. Closer examination exposed that the misalignment wasgoed occurring due to the voertuig framework flexing. There wasgoed no elementary way to stiffen the framework. Wij needed to find an alternate coupling with more misalignment capacity.
The existing envelope wasgoed very taut and the pump shaft wasgoed splined. Thesis conditions necessitated some special modifications. Wij were able to finalize a vormgeving that would be a onmiddellijk replacement with extra torque and misalignment capacity.
Testing went well, and our special assembly is being phased into the fleet. If you have a problem coupling, give us a call and wij ‘ll work with you to find a solution.
Electrified Clutches Increase Safety &, Efficiency
Many of our customers operate mobile equipment with numerous hydraulic pumps to perform a multitude of operations. Ter instances where one engine runs several pumps, power consumption, cold weather embarking and pump seal wear often cause problems.
Wij have worked with users and OEMs to upgrade their equipment to include electrified clutches. With the capability to entirely disconnect the hydraulic pumps, the engine has more power available to do what you want. Cold weather kicking off is much lighter without all of the pump haul.
The capability to remotely control PTO activities increases safety. Now that the pumps are only moving when required, seal life is extended. On top of thesis advantages, you will also save fuel.
Wij can help you.
Extending Railroad Brake Life
A local rail authority wasgoed experiencing rapid brake rotor wear. This required cars to be pulled out of service every six months. Because the rotors are inbetween the wheels, they had to be pulled and substituted spil well. This problem resulted ter enlargened downtime and higher operating costs.
Wij requested the operating profile and were able to simulate their running conditions on our dynostand. Wij used the existing rotor and brake pads to establish a baseline.
After a careful review, wij selected a compound to closely match the stopping profile. Our extra dyno runs showcased that wij matched thecurrent friction levels, extending padachtige life and reducing rotor wear.
The next step wasgoed field testing. After almost a year of actual operation, our recommended compound proved even better than wij projected. Rotor and padachtige life were extended by a factor greator than three.
