CARDAN SHAFTS – FOR SHAFT DRIVE VESSELS

Application: Engine to remote gearbox & gearbox to thrust bearing.

By combining Cardan Shafts with a Turret Thrust Bearing you have the perfect solution for conventional shaft drive vessels, reducing noise and vibration as well as simplifying engine installation and shaft alignment.

  • Low noise – smooth operation
  • Coated splines – fine tolerance, low friction, electrical isolation between flange ends
  • High torque and angle capacity with compact design
  • Maintenance free design options
  • Flanges-machined to suit gearbox

CARDAN SHAFTS – FOR WATERJET, STERNLEG & POD, REMOTE GEARBOX

Smooth, quiet & lightweight drivelines for:

  • Waterjet
  • Sternleg & Pod
  • Remote gearbox
  • Conventional shaft drives in combination with thrust bearing

This series is available to handle power/torque ratings exceeding 3000Hp/140kNm

Typical Component Specifications:

  • Euro series – high power capacity with compact design
  • ‘Lube-for-life’ universal joints c/w thrust washer bearing cap inserts – cool running temperature, service-free seal system

  • Rilson coated fine spline slip section – low friction properties for maximum power transfer and reduced lubrication
  • Flange ends custom machined to suit gearbox fixings

LONG SERIES DRIVESHAFTS

 

Beattys can design & manufacture Long Series Driveshafts fitted with support bearings to accommodate extended distances between engine and propulsion system.

SHORT COUPLED DRIVESHAFTS

  • Lengths starting from 180mm
  • Lightweight
  • Sliding spline designs
  • High performance designs to suit competition boats
  • Splined end yokes to suit waterjets

CV SHAFTS

Application: Engine to remote gearbox & gearbox to thrust bearing.

Continuous Torque ratings of 180Nm – 2kNm

  • Low noise smooth operation
  • Ability to absorb unequal angles
  • Maintenance free design
  • Ball design gives low axial force
  • Adaptor plates available for most gearboxes

CUSTOM DESIGN

Beattys Driveline Technologies has the expertise and facilities to design and manufacture custom drivelines to suit special applications:

  • High angle
  • High speed
  • Torsionally flexible
  • Extra long or super compact
  • Flanges custom machined to suit gearboxes

THRUST BEARING SOLUTIONS

In combination with Cardan Shafts, Turret Thrust Bearings provide the perfect solution for conventional shaft drive vessels, reducing noise and vibration as well as simplifying engine installation and shaft alignment.

 

Thrust Capacity from 3kN to 125kN

  • Simple internal clamp design on thrust bearings up to 2 1/2″
  • Large thrust bearings have standard flange bolting
  • Thrust force is absorbed through rubber pads parallel to the propeller shaft
  • Allows use of softer engine mounts

  WITHOUT THRUST BEARINGS:

In traditional installations, the alignment of the propeller shaft to the engine has to be precise and subject to periodical maintenance. Stiff mounts transmit high levels of vibration to the hull, even when perfectly aligned.

  WITH THRUST BEARINGS:

With Thrust Bearings the engine can be installed in a horizontal position using soft and efficient mounts. Apart from easy installation and permanent alignment, this also leads to better space utilisation while dramatically reducing vibration and noise.
