Evolution of Cooling Tower GearboxesBy Jerome Jennings, global product manager, SPX Cooling Technologies, Inc.
Industries that require process heat rejection often use field-erected cooling towers to keep pace with their heat load. Cooling towers have large fans and powerful motors, which can present a host of challenges, including excessive sound, vibration and expense. Gearboxes are employed to address these challenges.
Twin Disc Celebrates 100 Years of Manufacturing InnovationTwin Disc, Inc. is celebrating its 100th anniversary throughout 2018. The company began in Racine, Wisconsin in 1918 with the introduction of the twin disc farm tractor clutch. Since then, Twin Clutch has upgraded the performance of transmissions involved in farming, construction and marine applications. One of its major contributions to manufacturing history was Twin Disc’s involvement with the LCVP (Higgins boat) during World War II. The LCVP was the landing craft extensively used for amphibious landings that was designed by Andrew Higgins. Dwight D. Eisenhower was quoted as saying the vehicle was crucial to the Allies victory in Europe.
