The scientist Blaise Pascal formulated the principle of pressure propagation in liquids many years ago: Pascal's law or the principle of transmission of fluid-pressure states that , ”pressure exerted anywhere in a confined incompressible fluid is transmitted equally in all directions throughout the fluid such that the pressure ratio (initial difference) remains the same”. Available through ABSSAC the sole UK distributor, the ETP product utilises the many positive qualities of this principle and has continued to develop it further so that it can be utilised reliably and accurately within industrial applications.
All the products consist of a double-walled hardened steel (in some cases stainless steel) sleeve, filled with a pressure medium. In the product flange there are one or more screws and a piston with seals for the pressure setting. When the pressure screw is tightened an even and moderately high surface pressure is created against the shaft and hub, causing the locking effect. The self-contained product allows this procedure to be repeated many times.
Whether the hubs are to be removed or repositioned, mounting and dismantling is done in less than a few seconds. The hydraulic principle gives immediate advantages for today´s modern machines. The compact designs also ensure better concentricity and balance at increased machine speeds, shorter downtime for service and increased precision. The ETP products now available through Abssac Limited are chosen for more and more mechanical designs.

•Precision tolerance bores with excellent run out.
•Removes the need for keyways
So what is available ?
With names like ETP EXPRESS, ETP EXPRESS R, ETP POWER and ETP TECHNO, these products are, as it sounds, designed for a multitude of applications. In each case only a single screw is used for mounting and dismounting of the hub. This simple feature ensures an extremely quick and easy service interval time and incredibly easy adjustment or repositioning of the hub. The single screw hubs are used in a variety of applications and industries such as packaging, food, beverage and pharmaceutical. The standard ETP-TECHNO and ETP-EXPRESS are available for shafts 15mm to 130mm. ETP-EXPRESS R, Stainless steel versions, are available to suit shafts from 15mm to 80mm.
