Specialist power transmission supplier jbj Techniques Limited and the BLOODHOUND SSC R&D engineering team to solve a problem on the fuel pump test rig
Specialist power transmission supplier jbj Techniques Limited were recently contacted by the staff of BLOODHOUND SSC R&D engineering team to solve a problem on the fuel pump test rig.
jbj Techniques had worked with various team members in the past and this previous experience made jbj an easy choice to assist with this project.
The scope of supply was to produce a suitable drive coupling with a maximum diameter of 160mm which is capable of transmitting 550Nm @ 10,000 rpm, needed to be as short an assembly as possible and at the same time be able to accept misalignment within the drive-train.
jbj proposed a Sier Bath coupling from their principles RL Hydraulics in Germany who are a wholly owned subsidiary of Lovejoy Inc. in the USA. The high torque capacity of the coupling meant that, when assembled, it fitted perfectly within the existing adaptor arrangement and the crown tooth gear form on the coupling allows for relatively high misalignment without transferring loads between the shafts. ‘jbj’ had the blank parts in stock having a comprehensive stock of power transmission couplings of many types and designs. jbj Techniques are well known for this, being able to provide customers with essential quick turnaround to keep industrial downtime to an absolute minimum.
