Shaft Couplings

Shaft Couplings made at Teignbridge PropellersTeignbridge standard tapered couplings can be supplied to fit the output flange of any gearbox. Precision machined, they provide the best fit possible between coupling and shaft. They are precision machined, to close tolerances, to ensure concentricity and squareness of flange.

If supplied with shafting, coupling tapers are bedded to shafts at the factory to achieve a fit, using engineers blue, of 70% minimum. The fit of keys and keyways will also be inspected. When a coupling is supplied on its own, the fit to the shaft will need to be checked on site. The taper of the coupling, or shaft, should be scraped to produce a fit of 70% minimum. The key should be inspected for a correct fit in both coupling and shaft.

Clamp type shaft couplings can be supplied to fit the output flange of any gearbox. The advantage of using this type of shaft coupling is that the shaft length can be adjusted at the installation stage, giving the boat builder flexibility to make slight changes to the engine and propeller position. Teignbridge have supplied clamp type couplings for installations in excess of 400bhp.

    TESTIMONIALS

    My company recently placed an order with Teignbridge Propellers to supply propellers and stern gear systems for 6 x Twin screw Tug Boats. We were impressed with the quality of the equipment supplied and the ease with which we were able to fit it to the boats.

    I did not expect to gain much in terms of fuel use per mile, but the perfect balance of your prop certainly makes every mile a pleasure.
