PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT: TORSIONAL RIGID DISC PACK COUPLING WITH CLAMPING HUB
Manufacturer of precision and heavy duty flexible shaft couplings, R+W, has expanded upon its series of disc pack couplings with a new clamping hub connection (model LP5).
This zero maintenance coupling provides torsionally stiff transmission while also compensating for axial, lateral, and angular shaft misalignment. The combination of high strength bolts and precision alignment bushings on the disc packs, and split clamping hubs provides for 100% frictional transmission with zero backlash. This extremely rugged drive coupling is available in two sizes, with torque ratings of up to 1,400 Nm and bore diameters of 25-60 Nm.
Beyond the new LP5, there are additional models of R+W disc pack couplings, including keyway connections and conical clamping ring connections, in addition to a special version for API 610 pump systems. The various models are available in sizes corresponding to torque ratings from 350 to 20,000 Nm.
