At the core of Geislinger's carbon fibre shaft expertise lies the GESILCO® Shaftline, a complete driveline system crafted from advanced composite materials. What sets it apart is its one-piece manufacturing with an integrated fibre flange connection. This cutting-edge construction allows for easy adaptability to meet specific requirements. Geislinger offers complete drive shaft packages, including bearings, bulkhead seals, the latest Geislinger Hub and GESILCO® composite misalignment couplings, providing comprehensive solutions for a range of industrial and marine applications.
The GESILCO® Shaftline's advanced composite material offers several advantages over conventional steel drive shaft solutions. Its lower density enables higher critical speeds, allowing for increased spacing between support bearings. With their exceptional shock absorption capabilities, GESILCO® shaftlines are particularly suitable for vessels operating at high speeds. The result is a lightweight driveline system that enhances performance, efficiency, and overall vessel dynamics.
In industrial applications such as mine ventilation shafts and high pressure-pumps, the GESILCO® Shaftline distinguishes itself due to its impressive longevity, reliability, and ease of assembly. Additionally, its optimal weight characteristics contribute to improved efficiency without compromising performance.
Geislinger understands that each industrial and marine project comes with unique requirements. That's why the GESILCO® Shaftline is designed to be fully adaptable. Our expert engineering team can customize the material, design, size, function, and fibre orientation of the GESILCO® products to meet the specific needs of different applications. This flexibility enables the creation of tailor-made solutions that optimize performance and ensure seamless integration into diverse industrial or marine projects.
Geislinger also recognizes the importance of safety in these applications. For this reason, GESILCO® composite shafts can be supplied with a special fire-resistant outer layer. When combined with a sprinkler system mounted above the GESILCO® Shaftline, it meets SOLAS® fire resistance requirements without the need for an additional housing. Geislinger's commitment to safety ensures that their products not only deliver exceptional performance, but also meet stringent industry standards.
