A coupling is by its very definition a piece of equipment that is supposed to keep other pieces of equipment together. So, when parts of couplings start coming apart – you really have a problem. A problem that one of our customers experienced first-hand when failure of bolts on the couplings they produced started causing equipment failure and downtime for their customers.
A problem that has a very direct impact on your profits (through warranty related repairs) and – even more importantly – on the trust of your customers, the value of which is immeasurable.
The problem was swiftly resolved by implementing Loctite 243 into manufacturing process and thus efficiently securing the bolts in place against any vibration they may be subjected to once the coupling is put into service.
If you haven’t tried liquid threadlocker so far, you can now request a sample of Loctite 243 and give it a try. On the other hand, in case you’re not ready to sample yet and would like to learn more about threadlocking, keep an eye out for a webinar on this topic, or simply contact us directly and we’ll be happy to talk about your specific requirements.
