Industrial SU Variety
The SU Form coupling includes a single flex plane with two hubs along with a single disc pack. It truly is ideal for angular and axial misalignment only. Two SU couplings tend to be mixed by using a shaft
to create a floating shaft coupling. The shaft is usually hollow for long light weight floating shaft couplings.
Industrial SX Type
This really is the conventional coupling form that incorporates two hubs, a stock length spacer made to meet marketplace typical lengths, and two unitized disc packs. The coupling has two flex planes, one at each disc pack, allowing this coupling to accommodate parallel, angular, and axial misalignment with specified limits. The coupling is available in six and eight bolt types and bore sizes up to 13 inches (330mm) on the largest size. Custom spacer lengths can be manufactured to meet specific shaft separations demanded for particular applications. The SX coupling is usually fitted with overload bushings to safeguard the disc packs in over torque ailments and might act as an anti-flail device. SX couplings are assembled with the time of installation over the products in which the coupling are going to be in service.
Industrial DI Type
The DI Sort coupling features a “Drop-In” spacer assembly that is definitely assembled at the factory. The coupling includes two hubs plus a spacer assembly comprising in the spacer, two unitized disc packs, and two guard rings. The disc packs are bolted on the spacer and guard rings at the factory utilizing the torque values encouraged by Lovejoy for your disc pack bolts. With all the hubs mounted on the shafts, the entire disc pack assembly might be “Dropped In” spot in between the 2 hubs. The hubs are piloted to be sure good centering with the spacer assembly. This piloting serves as an anti-flail function and aids inside the coupling’s capacity to meet the balance requirements mandated by API. This style coupling is designed to meet the balance and anti-flail prerequisites specified in API-610.
Oversized, or Jumbo, hubs are available 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 size coupling can even now accommodate the application torque.
Industrial SXC Sort
The SXC Sort could be the near coupled variation from the SX Variety coupling. The SXC is similar to the SX coupling in that the disc packs are connected once the coupling is put in. While in the shut coupled units, the hubs are turned inward and are mounted within the spacer. Note that using the hubs within the spacer, the maximum bore permitted inside the hub might be decreased. The SXC couplings could be made use of with a single or the two hubs turned outward to permit the coupling to accommodate unique shaft separations.
Industrial SXCS and SXCST Types
The SXCS and SXCST Varieties have split spacers along with the disc packs is often serviced or eliminated without the need of moving the hubs within the shafts and without having moving the products. The SXCS Style has the bolts that connect the hubs for the split spacer put in from the ends from the couplings. The SXCST have the bolts set up from within the spacer pointing outward in the direction of the hubs.
