Industrial SU Variety
The SU Type coupling features a single flex plane with two hubs and also a single disc pack. It truly is appropriate for angular and axial misalignment only. Two SU couplings are often combined having a shaft
to create a floating shaft coupling. The shaft may be hollow for long light fat floating shaft couplings.
Industrial SX Type
That is the conventional coupling style that includes two hubs, a stock length spacer developed to meet business standard lengths, and two unitized disc packs. The coupling has two flex planes, a single at just about every disc pack, making it possible for this coupling to accommodate parallel, angular, and axial misalignment with specified limits. The coupling is accessible in 6 and 8 bolt patterns and bore sizes up to 13 inches (330mm) around the biggest dimension. Custom spacer lengths may be manufactured to meet exclusive shaft separations needed for precise applications. The SX coupling is often fitted with overload bushings to protect the disc packs in in excess of torque circumstances and will act as an anti-flail device. SX couplings are assembled on the time of installation around the equipment in which the coupling will likely be in support.
Industrial DI Kind
The DI Form coupling features a “Drop-In” spacer assembly that is certainly assembled with the factory. The coupling consists of two hubs as well as a spacer assembly comprising with the spacer, two unitized disc packs, and two guard rings. The disc packs are bolted for the spacer and guard rings on the factory utilizing the torque values recommended by Lovejoy to the disc pack bolts. With all the hubs mounted around the shafts, the complete disc pack assembly is often “Dropped In” area involving the two hubs. The hubs are piloted to make certain suitable centering on the spacer assembly. This piloting serves as an anti-flail characteristic and aids in the coupling’s capability to meet the balance specifications mandated by API. This style coupling is designed to meet the balance and anti-flail demands specified in API-610.
Oversized, or Jumbo, hubs can be found for use using the DI Style coupling to allow for larger bore sizes on most DI coupling sizes. This permits for your use of smaller sized DI couplings in applications in which a smaller dimension coupling can nevertheless accommodate the application torque.
Industrial SXC Sort
The SXC Variety is the close coupled variation on the SX Form coupling. The SXC is similar to the SX coupling in the disc packs are connected once the coupling is installed. Inside the shut coupled units, the hubs are turned inward and are mounted within the spacer. Note that using the hubs within the spacer, the utmost bore permitted while in the hub might be decreased. The SXC couplings is usually made use of with one or each hubs turned outward to permit the coupling to accommodate distinctive shaft separations.
Industrial SXCS and SXCST Styles
The SXCS and SXCST Types have split spacers along with the disc packs could be serviced or eliminated without moving the hubs about the shafts and devoid of moving the equipment. The SXCS Kind has the bolts that connect the hubs to the split spacer put in from your ends on the couplings. The SXCST possess the bolts put in from inside the spacer pointing outward in the direction of the hubs.
