LORD DYNAFLEX COUPLINGS - SPOOL TYPE
Horsepower Rated: 5 hp to 1000 hp at 2000 rpm
"Provide low frequency vibration isolation in high torque drive systems..."
LORD Spool-Type Couplings provide low frequency vibration isolation in high torque drive systems.
These couplings are customer-assembled using LORD Corporation's bonded flexing spools, bolted between customer-supplied metal hubs. Spools should be placed around recommended bolt circle on hub.
Coupling assembly has torsional deflection of 2° under rated torque.
Shear spool-type couplings provide excellent protection against destructive torsional vibration in high-torque drive systems.
Bonded spools can be installed or replaced with minimum effort.
Maximum recommended misalignment 1/32 in. parallel, 1º angular.
Coupling permits wide latitude in shaft lengths. However, sufficient spacing between shaft ends should be provided to allow for shaft end play.
Rubber elements: LORD does not supply hubs, elements only. Metal parts - steel. Flexing element - environmental-resistant elastomer.
It is suggested that all designs for spool-type flexible couplings be reviewed with DeltaFlex Engineering.
