RE: Broken Spline shaft in 1 ton capacity soap mixer

Need more info, was it a ribbon mixer , drum mixer, fountain mixer , Do you have pictures?

You are judged not by what you know, but by what you can do.

RE: Broken Spline shaft in 1 ton capacity soap mixer

Is the shaft it self broken or are the splines sheared off? Really need a picture.

When it comes to couplings we are always here to help.

Enlarged or microscopic pictures of broken surfaces necessary.

Faults are often caused by overload or unbalance, and often starting from material weakness not detactable from outer surfaces or from mechanical scratches or damaged into outer surface.

Any unormal activity before breaking? Resonance, vibrations, overload, damaged bearings, repairs or any operating moods deviating from normal. Operator knowledge and change? Age of components, earlier experience?

Combination of causes is possible.
