The grid coupling of a large water pump at Sheffield Forgemasters Engineering Ltd. (S.F.E.L.) was coming to the end of its operational life. To avoid costly re-engineering of the pump S.F.E.L. wanted to commission a bespoke coupling to match the original’s footprint.
After spending money on a powerful new pump and the motor to run it,the next big decision is how to connect the two in a way that maximizes their efficiencies and protects them from normal wear and tear.
