Hydraulic Shrink Disc

In high power density applications, it is the total overhung moment that impacts rotor dynamics. The Riverhawk Hydraulic Shrink Disc is infinitely adjustable with slip-fit components and provides ultra-secure clamping of shaft elements while allowing a reduction in shaft diameter, design and shorter interfaces. These factors translate into reduced overall overhung moment. Keys and splines produce stress concentrations in machine shafts. Tapered shaft ends and bores are expensive to produce and require special tooling. Our hardware allows designs using straight, cylindrical, slip fit surfaces eliminating stress concentrations and reducing costs. The high squeeze capability of this hardware translates into smaller shafting requirements. Smaller shafts translate into smaller bearing requirements reducing overall cost and increase design flexibility.
