Industrial SU Kind
The SU Sort coupling features a single flex plane with two hubs as well as a single disc pack. It can be suitable for angular and axial misalignment only. Two SU couplings are often combined using a shaft
to generate a floating shaft coupling. The shaft can be hollow for extended light excess weight floating shaft couplings.
Industrial SX Variety
This really is the normal coupling form that incorporates two hubs, a stock length spacer intended to meet business regular lengths, and two unitized disc packs. The coupling has two flex planes, one at each disc pack, permitting this coupling to accommodate parallel, angular, and axial misalignment with specified limits. The coupling is obtainable in six and eight bolt patterns and bore sizes up to 13 inches (330mm) to the largest size. Custom spacer lengths can be produced to meet special shaft separations expected for certain applications. The SX coupling may be fitted with overload bushings to protect the disc packs in more than torque circumstances and can act as an anti-flail device. SX couplings are assembled on the time of installation around the equipment the place the coupling will probably be in support.
Industrial DI Style
The DI Kind coupling includes a “Drop-In” spacer assembly that’s assembled with the factory. The coupling consists of two hubs as well as a spacer assembly comprising from the spacer, two unitized disc packs, and two guard rings. The disc packs are bolted towards the spacer and guard rings at the factory making use of the torque values advised by Lovejoy for that disc pack bolts. Using the hubs mounted to the shafts, the complete disc pack assembly is often “Dropped In” area between the two hubs. The hubs are piloted to be sure right centering of your spacer assembly. This piloting serves as an anti-flail feature and aids in the coupling’s potential to meet the stability standards mandated by API. This design coupling is designed to meet the stability and anti-flail necessities 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 allows for the use of smaller sized DI couplings in applications where a smaller size coupling can nonetheless accommodate the application torque.
Industrial SXC Variety
The SXC Sort is definitely the close coupled variation of the SX Form coupling. The SXC is much like the SX coupling in that the disc packs are connected when the coupling is set up. From the shut coupled units, the hubs are turned inward and are mounted within the spacer. Note that using the hubs inside the spacer, the utmost bore allowed during the hub is going to be decreased. The SXC couplings may be utilised with one or both hubs turned outward to permit the coupling to accommodate various shaft separations.
Industrial SXCS and SXCST Sorts
The SXCS and SXCST Varieties have split spacers plus the disc packs is often serviced or removed with no moving the hubs on the shafts and without the need of moving the products. The SXCS Type has the bolts that connect the hubs towards the split spacer set up from the ends with the couplings. The SXCST have the bolts set up from inside the spacer pointing outward in direction of the hubs.
