Did you know that the average Australian home uses about 14 cubic metres of structural pine? According to Simon Gatt, Resources Manager at Associated Kiln Driers (AKD), this wood stores carbon for the duration of the structure’s lifetime, making timber a valuable renewable resource with...

“The importance of safety guards is underrated, which is likely why their cost and construction isn’t considered as carefully as it should be,” says CBC’s Steve Hittmann. “Safety guards are designed to cover coupling shafts and pump connections — not only to protect the application, but also to protect nearby personnel from being injured by a high-speed rotating mechanical device or occasional pump...

A couple of days before Christmas, CBC was approached by a customer who had experienced a sudden breakdown on their mine winder, the hoisting application they were running underground. “The mine winder is usually located in a shed nearby the recognisable scaffolded tower operation that runs the cables,”...

CBC’s Troy Markland often defers to the Rexnord product range when supplying Power Transmission solutions to customers in the food-processing segment. “Even with my 40 years of experience in Power Transmission, I still consult frequently with the product experts from Rexnord when I am looking to design a more effective conveying application for a client,” he says. When it comes to designing an effective general conveying application where there will be...

The Rexnord Falk Steelflex couplings house tapered grids that are constructed from high-strength alloy steel, and are quenched, and tempered to spring hardness. The grid surface is then precision shot peened. This precision technology was originally used in the production of sophisticated aircraft components, according to Steve Hittmann, CBC’s National Product Manager for Mechanical Drive...

When a secure connection is required between two rotating mating parts transmitting torque a keyway is often machined into both shafts and a parallel or straight key is used to secure the connection. Rexnord backed by more than 40 years of application expertise has within its...

Rexnord has upgraded its popular case conveyor chains, the CC600 and the CC600TAB with new low-friction versions the LF600 and LF600TAB. The move to low friction conveyor chains, as CBC National Product Manager for Power Transmission Troy Markland explains, is in line with the market’s increased...

Rexnord’s conveying chains are frequently used in the food and beverage sector and adopted by major equipment manufacturers. Rexnord’s range of FlatTop conveyor chains has grown substantially since Rexnord introduced them in 1938. The Rexnord TableTop and MatTop series now provide many materials, types and grades, making them applicable to...

Rexnord’a Addax® composite couplings are corrosion resistant coupling with high-misalignment capacity. As the pioneer for advanced composite couplings, Rexnord first introduced Addax couplings in 1987 for the cooling tower industry. More than 30 years later, the couplings are widely used in cooling towers and other heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC)...
