FLUID POWER: Prolonged exposure to moisture, combined with seasonal temperature changes, can cause premature coupling failure in wastewater treatment facilities. Couplings play a critical role in wastewater processing power transmission applications. The right coupling can prolong equipment life by minimizing vibration, accommodating misalignment and reducing maintenance costs. Coupling failures will result in unacceptable levels of maintenance and downtime.
Utilizing polyurethane material that is specially formulated to provide superior weathering, chemical resistance, and dynamic properties, Altra Industrial Motion’s TB Wood’s DuraFlex couplings are an ideal solution for wastewater treatment applications. Plant operators find the lightweight couplings are easy to install, with no need to remove hubs during element replacement due to the convenient two-piece, split element design. The Dura-Flex coupling requires no maintenance or lubrication. DuraFlex couplings provide long service life while handling the harsh environment and constant 24/7/365 operation associated with tough, outdoor wastewater installations.
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply donít need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
Wind turbines already are imposing structures that stretch high into the sky, but an engineering graduate student at the University of Notre Dame wants to make them even taller to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.
