The right coupling type, when installed correctly, can improve pump and motor efficiency and reduce wear.
Evaluate elastomeric and metallic couplings for an application.
Lower coupling restoring forces can increase bearing and seal life.
One unique design transmits torque across the disc pack assemblies purely by friction, helping to prevent issues associated with stress concentration, backlash and chatter.
Some pumps were running with high vibration levels, while the disc couplings were failing on a regular basis.
Users should consider these important factors when choosing the best equipment for their applications.
Vibration and maintenance were reduced with the installation of carefully selected equipment.
