Disc couplings for high torque applications

08 November 2015

SKF has introduced a range of disc couplings that offer lubrication-free service in medium to high torque applications that require torsional rigidity.

The SKF Disc Coupling has a capacity range up to 178kNm in a variety of configurations, including single disc, double disc and spacer for both horizontal and vertical mounting.

The couplings consist of two hubs and a laminated stainless steel disc pack secured by a series of fitted bolts retained by nylon insert lock nuts. They offer some allowance for misalignment and do not require lubrication.

Single disc couplings accommodate angular offset, while double disc pack units with a spacer will allow for angular, parallel or combined offset. The disc pack, or spacer may be removed and re-installed radially, meaning the prime mover and driven machine need not be moved at all.
