Stromag engineering team recently designed a hybrid Periflex CR (PCR) shaft coupling for a manufacturer of dredging systems who needed a reliable coupling solution with a small footprint for use on a new dredging vessel platform. 

The system features a 1200 HP diesel engine that drives a complex, custom-designed, eight-pad gearbox with primary output to a two-speed clutch that drives the system’s main pump, as well as hydraulic pump pads to operate a crane and auxiliaries,” the Germany based developer and manufacturer of power transmission components said in its release.

The modified PCR coupling utilized a rubber element from a similar Stromag model PCS coupling and a bolt-on adaptor hub with a splined bore.

Extensive torsional vibration analysis (TVA) work was completed on this complex multi-stream system of 9 driven components as the coupling was sized to fit within the tight space constraints of the customer’s gearbox bell housing.

The coupling’s flexible ring effectively absorbs torsional impacts.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
