Industrial SU Style
The SU Kind coupling includes a single flex plane with two hubs along with a single disc pack. It really is suitable for angular and axial misalignment only. Two SU couplings are frequently combined that has a shaft
to produce a floating shaft coupling. The shaft is often hollow for prolonged light bodyweight floating shaft couplings.
Industrial SX Style
This really is the common coupling form that involves two hubs, a stock length spacer built to meet market regular lengths, and two unitized disc packs. The coupling has two flex planes, one particular at just about every disc pack, permitting this coupling to accommodate parallel, angular, and axial misalignment with specified limits. The coupling is accessible in six and 8 bolt models and bore sizes as much as 13 inches (330mm) within the biggest size. Customized spacer lengths may be manufactured to meet specific shaft separations demanded for certain applications. The SX coupling could be fitted with overload bushings to guard the disc packs in more than torque problems and may act as an anti-flail gadget. SX couplings are assembled in the time of set up over the tools exactly where the coupling might be in services.
Industrial DI Sort
The DI Variety coupling includes a “Drop-In” spacer assembly that is certainly assembled on the factory. The coupling consists of two hubs along with a spacer assembly comprising with the spacer, two unitized disc packs, and two guard rings. The disc packs are bolted to your spacer and guard rings at the factory working with the torque values recommended by Lovejoy to the disc pack bolts. With the hubs mounted about the shafts, the complete disc pack assembly might be “Dropped In” location among the 2 hubs. The hubs are piloted to be sure proper centering with the spacer assembly. This piloting serves as an anti-flail feature and aids in the coupling’s ability to meet the balance requirements mandated by API. This design coupling is designed to meet the balance and anti-flail specifications specified in API-610.
Oversized, or Jumbo, hubs can be found for use using the DI Style coupling to allow for more substantial bore sizes on most DI coupling sizes. This permits for your use of smaller DI couplings in applications wherever a smaller sized dimension coupling can even now accommodate the application torque.
Industrial SXC Style
The SXC Variety may be the near coupled variation of the SX Variety coupling. The SXC is much like the SX coupling in the disc packs are connected once the coupling is set up. In the shut coupled units, the hubs are turned inward and are mounted within the spacer. Note that together with the hubs within the spacer, the maximum bore permitted from the hub are going to be decreased. The SXC couplings may be made use of with one particular or each hubs turned outward to allow the coupling to accommodate distinctive shaft separations.
Industrial SXCS and SXCST Kinds
The SXCS and SXCST Sorts have split spacers plus the disc packs could be serviced or eliminated with no moving the hubs about the shafts and without moving the products. The SXCS Form has the bolts that connect the hubs on the split spacer installed through the ends in the couplings. The SXCST possess the bolts installed from inside the spacer pointing outward in the direction of the hubs.
