Based on its market leading Torsiflex range, Bibby has developed a composite, carbon fibre shaft coupling which has the unique ability to operate over lengths of up to 10m without central bearings. The Turboflex’s coupling has an inherently low mass and generous misalignment capacity, which does not require routine maintenance.
The range of Torsiflex disc couplings from Bibby Transmissions has been expanded to offer customers a greater selection for applications in process pump, fan blowers, compressors and general industrial markets. The new design of AHX hubs and Torsi-Lock® hubs will be seen for the first time at the Hannover tradeshow in April, Hall 25 Stand C03.
The oil and gas industry uses a wide range of pumps in typical power train configurations. Most oil and gas pump installations, including offshore platforms, oil and gas refineries and processing facilities, are required to meet API 610 (American Petroleum Institute) standards. API 610 outlines minimum standards for pump safety, reliability and maintenance in these very hazardous environments.
