Disc Coupling Overview

Industrial SU Sort
The SU Sort coupling features a single flex plane with two hubs as well as a single disc pack. It is actually suitable for angular and axial misalignment only. Two SU couplings are often mixed which has a shaft
for making a floating shaft coupling. The shaft may be hollow for lengthy light excess weight floating shaft couplings.
Industrial SX Kind
This is certainly the standard coupling style that contains two hubs, a stock length spacer developed to meet business common lengths, and two unitized disc packs. The coupling has two flex planes, one at every disc pack, enabling this coupling to accommodate parallel, angular, and axial misalignment with specified limits. The coupling is accessible in 6 and 8 bolt models and bore sizes as much as 13 inches (330mm) within the biggest dimension. Custom spacer lengths is often manufactured to meet exclusive shaft separations needed for precise applications. The SX coupling may 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 to the tools wherever the coupling will probably be in services.
Industrial DI Variety
The DI Form coupling includes a “Drop-In” spacer assembly that’s assembled at the factory. The coupling includes two hubs and also a spacer assembly comprising in the spacer, two unitized disc packs, and two guard rings. The disc packs are bolted for the spacer and guard rings with the factory using the torque values proposed by Lovejoy to the disc pack bolts. Using the hubs mounted within the shafts, the whole disc pack assembly could be “Dropped In” place in between the two hubs. The hubs are piloted to be sure correct centering from the spacer assembly. This piloting serves as an anti-flail characteristic and aids inside the coupling’s capacity to meet the balance specifications mandated by API. This fashion coupling is built to meet the stability and anti-flail demands specified in API-610.
Oversized, or Jumbo, hubs are available for use with all the DI Variety coupling to allow for greater bore sizes on most DI coupling sizes. This permits for your use of smaller DI couplings in applications exactly where a smaller sized dimension coupling can still accommodate the application torque.
Industrial SXC Form
The SXC Type could be the close coupled variation in the SX Form coupling. The SXC is much like the SX coupling in that the disc packs are attached once the coupling is set up. In the shut coupled units, the hubs are turned inward and therefore are mounted inside the spacer. Note that together with the hubs inside the spacer, the utmost bore permitted during the hub will be decreased. The SXC couplings may be utilised with 1 or the two hubs turned outward to allow the coupling to accommodate unique shaft separations.
Industrial SXCS and SXCST Styles
The SXCS and SXCST Kinds have split spacers as well as the disc packs may be serviced or eliminated devoid of moving the hubs to the shafts and devoid of moving the products. The SXCS Variety has the bolts that connect the hubs towards the split spacer set up from the ends on the couplings. The SXCST have the bolts set up from within the spacer pointing outward in direction of the hubs.
