ANSI Elastomer Couplings

ANSI Elastomer Couplings

A Series couplings provide a solution to one of the most persistent and troublesome problems facing maintenance personnel, periodic coupling failure and the downtime and expense that goes with it. If a new insert is needed, a replacement can be installed in minutes, without moving either the prime mover or the driven equipment.

The A Series is the simplest construction of all our couplings. The design is compact and fully conforms with ANSI requirements.

The arrangement consists of a close coupled hub and a spacer hub. One end of the spacer piece has six or eight teeth, depending on size with the other end flanged. All of these components are made of quality carbon steel. The split insert, which is made of specially compounded Urethane, fits over the hub / spacer teeth. The retaining ring is made of steel, located with two setscrews. Bolts are supplied to assemble the spacer to spacer hub and a specially formed thread is used to lock and retain.

Design Features

Meets the requirements of ANSI specification.

Fail safe:

In the unlikely event of a failure the flexible insert is contained by a steel retaining ring. This minimizes potential personnel injury and plant damage.

Non contacting:
No metal to metal contact provides a non-sparking design.

Zero Maintenance:
The coupling has no relative moving parts, and hence requires no lubrication or routine maintenance.

Ease of Assembly:
The insert can be replaced without moving the associated machines.

Hubs can be rotated independently for motor test.
