Connecting Shafts

A common system operating problem stems from connecting shafts made from standard steel, which are often bowed or out-of-round. This results in a whipping effect while the system is being run with the connecting shaft working its way loose from the system at high speeds and doing a great deal of damage to the system’s equipment.
