Our disc packs are produced working with high grade stainless steel
(AISI-301), making certain substantial strength, higher endurance to fatigue, and resistance to most environmental problems.
Disc couplings make use of unitized disc packs with the two 6 or 8 bolt designs. The 8 bolt layout can transmit better torque compared to the six bolt layout, on the other hand, it is not able to accommodate as a lot angular misalignment.
Couplings can be fitted with overload bushings to guard the disc pack through momentary torsional overloads.
Couplings are presented inside a assortment of configurations to fit most applications. Furthermore, ?¡¥s engineering division can customize a coupling to meet many particular specifications this kind of as close coupled, drop-out centers, electrically insulated, vertical mounting, and security couplings. A notable layout provided by may be the lowered moment (DI Variety) coupling that meets the anti-flail device demands mandated in API-610 though providing a very low weight and short center of gravity to bearing distance.
The design and style and manufacture of disc couplings is integrated into a licensed High quality Program in accordance to ISO-9001 to fulfill the higher excellent requirements of clients.
Positive aspects in the Disc Coupling
Eliminates the need to have for lubrication and coupling maintenance
Coupling is usually inspected with no disassembly
Condition of disc packs might be inspected having a strobe light although the machine is working
Note: It is actually not encouraged that couplings be operated with out coupling guards.
Easy to assess equipment misalignment
Torsionally rigid with out any backlash
No wearing parts
\Resistance to harsh environments
Long daily life when properly sized and aligned
High power density (larger torque for a given outside diameter)
Supports the API-610 Regular up to 3,800 RPM
Unitized disc packs guarantee repeatability necessary for meeting the stability and piloting demands as mandated by API-610
Accessible with Overload Bushings to protect the coupling from momentary torque overloads
Prevents the disc pack from getting plastically deformed
Allows for shorter BSE (shaft separation) simply because bolts can be turned to face inward
Special orientation of bolts makes it possible for the bolts to become tightened using a torque wrench instead of nuts (Normal is usually to tighten nuts with torque wrench)
