In order to inspect the root cause of the incident, the broken part was examined and it was observed that the accident occurred due to the failure flange coupling
connecting the ride with the balancing weight.
A 3D view of the proposed flange coupling
is shown in Fig.1, which is designed in the modeling software pro/ENGINEER.
It has also designed an innovative pipe flange coupling
prototype, and is in discussions with investors after promising early product trials.
A chuck coupling with dual setscrews or a bolted flange coupling
design is utilized on the mixers for positive shaft attachment.
The ground drive system incorporates a pair of variable displacement axial piston pumps driven off the engine crankshaft through a flange coupling
. The main pump assembly supplies two-speed axial piston motors located in the drive flame, along with a gear pump that powers the blade, house and boom swing cylinders.
KTR, a manufacturer of a wide range of couplings for engine-powered equipment, has expanded the applications for its Monolastic single-piece flange coupling
for axial plug-in pump toothed shafts.
The coupling is a brazed SAE code 62 flange coupling
with no welded joints.
