Power Station Disc Springs (Spring Washers)

Wind Turbines

power-stationsMubea Disc Springs are used in the safety brakes for the turbines in the wind energy market. These brakes are used to stop the rotation of the turbine when not in use. Another possible application for belleville disc springs in the turbines is to support the generator. For this application, two spring stacks are used to compensate for uneven loading of the generator. This uneven loading is a result of torque generated from the load input.

Power Plants

EN 16983 (DIN 2093) compliant, our high quality Mubea spring stacks are often used in the construction of power stations. Backed by more than 40 years of ingenious German engineering, our disc spring stacks can be used for boiler suspension systems to compensate for bearing surface deflections. The assemblies guarantee even lowering of the boiler with fluctuations in load due to thermal expansion.

Applications include:

  • Production facilities
  • Boiler construction
  • Incinerating plants
  • Desulphurization plants
