Testing slow speed, high torque applications

Centa Transmissions has launched a brand new flexible coupling specifically designed for testing within systems before they are installed or constructed. Centawave is a torsionally stiff and homokinetic link coupling that facilitates for angular misalignments of up to 12 degrees and torques from three to 20,000kNm.

Explains Michael Sykes, manager of both Centa's gear and renewables divisions and head of special projects: "Centawave will primarily be used to test wind turbine drives and offshore renewable products. It will also be extremely suitable for many test rig applications, ranging from petrol/diesel engines through to marine gearboxes and anything in between. It is a powerful and flexible coupling that is totally unique."

The Centawave link coupling is so-called due to its functional principle of angular misalignment being compensated by a wave-like movement of its links that allows for uneven angular deflection at the same time.
