The Geislinger coupling has proven its efficiency since more than 50 years. Groups of leaf spring packs transmit the torque and provide elasticity, pressurised oil provides hydrodynamic damping.
Stiffness and damping can be adjusted individually. By this the coupling is able to shift torsionally critical speeds and damp torsional vibrations. Resistant to heat and oil, the Geislinger coupling is perfectly suitable for all types and sizes of machines but in particular diesel and gas engines. Using high-grade steel and advanced design, the coupling provides constant properties over the whole lifetime.
Especially where reliability and cost of ownership are decisive factors, the Geislinger coupling is first choice. Thus leaders in marine propulsion, power generation, mining and the oil and gas industry rely on Geislinger.
The Geislinger steel spring coupling can be combined with other Geislinger coupling solutions like the Geislinger Flexlink or the Gesilco Couplings to cope with higher misalignment requirements.
As not every engine can provide pressurized oil supply, Geislinger has developed pre-filled and spray-oil supplied steel spring couplings. Both implement the proven reliability of steel springs to provide torque transmission and elasticity, but use the oil only for lubrication and not for damping.
