Voith connection couplings transmit torque, backlash-free in a friction joint. They transfer the most torque in relation to size, which adds high performance and allows for more effective dimensioning of the driveline. Setting and releasing occurs hydraulically, which enables fast installation, service, and maintenance.
All models can be customized to suit existing, as well as newly designed interfaces. Torque limiting, process improvement and connection couplings from Voith help protect high-value rotating equipment components and increase productivity in a variety of industries.
The HyCon connection coupling consists mainly of a tapered parts sleeve and a tapered hub. To secure the shaft, the tapered hub is hydraulically pushed up onto the tapered sleeve. The pressure assembly creates a tight grip that holds the shaft. When the coupling is pressurized, the tapered surfaces are totally separated from each other. The seals on both sides of the coupling ensure that no oil leak can occur. This smart design minimizes the environmental impact.
HyCon is a typical application in the marine and heavy industries. It ensures a reliable low-weight friction connection with outstanding performance and torque capacity. HyCon is easily installed without oil leakage and is safe both for people and environment.
