Disc Spring (Spring Washer) Energy Storage
Energy Storage for Safety Systems
Belleville disc springs are used in hydraulic spring mechanisms as an energy storage source as part of Mubea’s heavy-duty disc spring stacks. The system pressure compresses the spring stack when the switch is open. If the system should suffer a hydraulic pressure loss, the spring stack unloads, closing the switch. This technology is often used by manufacturers of electric control units.
All of Mubea’s disc spring stacks are EN 16983 (DIN 2093) compliant, and are an excellent way to store energy for safety systems. Contact the professionals at Mubea today to learn more about designing electrical control units.
