Elastomers In Compression
We gives four types of elastomer patterns to allow for additional flexibility in addressing distinct application specifications. 1 piece designs are utilized in the “L” and “AL” models (called spiders) and various component “load cushions” are utilized in the “C” and “H” model couplings. The load cushions are in sets of 6 to 14 pieces based upon coupling size.
Sound Center Spider
The strong center style is commonly employed design and style when shafts of your driver and driven gear is often stored separate by a typical gap
Open Center Spider
The open center design allows for your shafts with the driver and driven to get positioned inside of a short distance
Open center spiders offer shaft positioning versatility but possess a reduce RPM capability
Used solely for that C and H Sort couplings
Load cushions are held in spot radially by a steel collar which can be connected to one of several hubs
Snap Wrap Flexible Spider
Design enables for quick removal of the spider without having moving the hubs
Makes it possible for for near shaft separation each of the way as much as the hubs maximum bore
Maximum RPM is one,750 RPM using the retaining ring, but if made use of using the LC Sort (with collar) the usual RPM rating of your coupling applies
Fashion is accessible in NBR and Urethane only, and in restricted sizes
Spider Materials
SOX (NBR) Rubber
The common material that is hugely flexible materials that’s oil resistant
Resembles organic rubber in resilience and elasticity, and operates correctly in temperature ranges of -40° to 212° F (-40° to 100° C)
Has 1.five occasions better torque capability than NBR
Great resistance to oil and chemical substances
Material presents significantly less dampening effect and operates at a temperature array of -30° to 160° F
Versatile elastomer designed for substantial torque and high temperature operations
Operates in temperatures of -60° to 250° F (-51° to 121° C)
Rigid, porous, oil-impregnated metal insert exclusively for reduced velocity (max 250 RPM) applications requiring high torque abilities
Not affected by water, oil, dirt, or intense temperatures – operates in temperatures of -40° to 450° F (-40° to 232° C)
