COUPLINGS MAINTENANCE, REPAIR & OVERHAULS
HOW BARTECH PROPULSION CAN HELP WITH YOUR COUPLINGS
Couplings perform a vital function with any engine package, whether connecting the engine to a shaft, or other drive system.
When operating correctly they will dampen the vibrations from the engine to prevent resonance and protecting the drive train. If not operating correctly, extra fatigue will be placed on the system leading to damage and possible destruction.
Couplings can quite often be overlooked as part of maintenance schedules as it is a separate component to the engine, but the role it plays means it needs to be looked after.
For Geislinger couplings, they will last the lifetime of the engine as long as they are correctly maintained. From an operational perspective, this is the use of the correct, clean oil and following the manufacturers guidelines, rather than the one from the engine builder.
As the sole UK representative for Geislinger, Bartech have factory trained engineers to ensure inspections and overhauls are carried out in accordance with the OEM guidelines for peace of mind. Geislinger are the market leader for engine dampers and couplings, supplying most of the leading engine manufacturers including Wärtsilä, MTU, Caterpillar, MAN, Cummins and Niigata.

Different couplings are dealt with differently with some sealed units requiring replacing at intervals, whilst rubber based couplings will often require their core changed at designated intervals. With experience overhauling Vulkan units, Bartech is well equipped to support all coupling types, adding a 12 month warranty for further reassurance.
With over 35 years’ experience and with mechanical and electrical service engineers at our disposal, we can deploy at short notice to any location worldwide.
