  • Vessel Mooring Winches

    Twiflex Ltd., along with their partner Intertech b.v., recently supplied brakes to a major offshore winch manufacturer based in the Netherlands for use on ship-to-ship mooring winches. The brakes are used on the winches to limit tension in the towing cable and are required to slip briefly if the peak loading condition is exceeded.

  • Boston Gear Components Toughen Up Banner

    26 March  2015

    While the power transmission industry is pretty mature, power transmission components have had to endure a lot of hardships imposed upon them by the food and beverage industry. With the ever-increasing concerns about foodborne illness and the need to kill bacteria to a 99.999 percent level, gearboxes, gears and bearings have been holding their own, while enduring the onslaught of harsh cleaning environments.

  • Oil Refinery Cooling Fan Drive

    A major industrial fan OEM needed a clutch solution for a large dual drive fan at an oil refinery in Brazil. The refinery never shuts down and requires a continuous, uninterruptible supply of cooling air. The fan is powered by an electric motor on one side and a steam turbine on the other side. Clutches are used to provide a smooth transfer of power from one power supply to the other without stopping the fan.
