Good luck!

"These challenges led the design engineers at Coffin to develop an innovative alternative to the traditional flexible coupled pump - a close coupled design featuring both the pump and steam turbine mounted together on a single, center supported, rigid shaft. The design concept eliminates the coupling, and, because the pump and the turbine are solidly aligned and center supported, they are unaffected by temperature differences. Alignment problems are eliminated and a Coffin pump can be "cold started" to maximum capacity in a matter of seconds."
