FLEXIBLE DISC COUPLING
1. Flexible Disc Coupling
Flexible Disc Couplings and Flexible Disc Packs are engineered for infinite life and optimized for motor, engine and turbine-driven applications.
This coupling is ideal for heavy-duty, slow to medium speed applications, where high-starting torque, shock loads, torque reversals or continuous alternating torques are present.
The open lug type center member provides ample clearance for assembly while minimizing the space required for coupling installations.
Typical applications include motor and turbine driven pumps, compressors, fans, synchronized rollers, wire feeders and blowers.
It is compatible with a range of hub sizes and available in 21 sizes ranging from 162 through 1550.
Flexible Disc Coupling is engineered to accomodate torque loads up to 3,124,000 lb-in and shaft diameters up to 16.0 inches.
