Wärtsilä High Friction Couplings

Technologies relating to ship design and operation have evolved over the years, creating greater efficiencies and extended lifespans for shaft line equipment. These developments are typically born by customer needs. One such market demand is to have a larger shaft line torque capacity with reduced shaft dimensions. This requirement refers to the hydraulic couplings connecting the different shafts, which enables the torque transmission through the shaft lines.
