Floating Shafts

Up to 270 kNm;
2,400,000 in.lbs.

Floating shaft couplings are specifically designed for long span applications from 24” to over 300”. Tru-Tube composite tubes (shown) can be specified for spans up to 220” (6 meters). Composite tubes weigh up to 80% less than steel and can eliminate the cost of bearing supports and other structures.

  • Horizontal or vertical applications
  • Custom designed to specification
  • Steel, stainless steel or composite tube construction

Typical Applications

  • Cooling Tower Fans
  • Vertical Pumping Systems
  • Mine Ventilation Fans
  • Fans/Blowers
  • Test Equipment
