Industrial SU Type
The SU Style coupling has a single flex plane with two hubs and a single disc pack. It is actually suitable for angular and axial misalignment only. Two SU couplings tend to be combined with a shaft
for making a floating shaft coupling. The shaft might be hollow for long light bodyweight floating shaft couplings.
Industrial SX Form
This is the typical coupling type that involves two hubs, a stock length spacer intended to meet business standard lengths, and two unitized disc packs. The coupling has two flex planes, one at just about every disc pack, permitting this coupling to accommodate parallel, angular, and axial misalignment with specified limits. The coupling is available in six and 8 bolt patterns and bore sizes as much as 13 inches (330mm) about the greatest dimension. Custom spacer lengths might be produced to meet exclusive shaft separations demanded for unique applications. The SX coupling could be fitted with overload bushings to safeguard the disc packs in over torque situations and will act as an anti-flail gadget. SX couplings are assembled on the time of installation around the gear exactly where the coupling will likely be in service.
Industrial DI Style
The DI Type coupling includes a “Drop-In” spacer assembly that may be assembled with the factory. The coupling consists of two hubs along with a spacer assembly comprising in the spacer, two unitized disc packs, and two guard rings. The disc packs are bolted towards the spacer and guard rings on the factory applying the torque values encouraged by Lovejoy to the disc pack bolts. With the hubs mounted around the shafts, the whole disc pack assembly can be “Dropped In” location amongst the 2 hubs. The hubs are piloted to ensure appropriate centering of the spacer assembly. This piloting serves as an anti-flail attribute and aids inside the coupling’s skill to meet the stability requirements mandated by API. This type coupling is developed to meet the balance and anti-flail requirements specified in API-610.
Oversized, or Jumbo, hubs can be found for use with the DI Sort coupling to allow for greater bore sizes on most DI coupling sizes. This enables for that use of smaller sized DI couplings in applications the place a smaller sized dimension coupling can still accommodate the application torque.
Industrial SXC Sort
The SXC Style would be the shut coupled variation from the SX Kind coupling. The SXC is just like the SX coupling in the disc packs are attached once the coupling is put in. In the shut coupled units, the hubs are turned inward and are mounted within the spacer. Note that with all the hubs within the spacer, the utmost bore allowed within the hub will likely be decreased. The SXC couplings can be utilized with one or each hubs turned outward to permit the coupling to accommodate unique shaft separations.
Industrial SXCS and SXCST Sorts
The SXCS and SXCST Styles have split spacers and also the disc packs can be serviced or eliminated without having moving the hubs about the shafts and without the need of moving the gear. The SXCS Variety has the bolts that connect the hubs to your split spacer put in in the ends with the couplings. The SXCST have the bolts installed from within the spacer pointing outward in direction of the hubs.
