Autogard offer maintenance free, flexible disc and elastomeric coupling solutions.
Now there’s a new solution to one of the most costly and troublesome problems facing maintenance personnel – coupling failure and the expensive down time associated with fixing it.
Only four parts to the Samiflex Coupling
The two identical hubs (items A & B) are manufactured in cast iron, cast steel or aluminium alloy and incorporate four, six or eight teeth, depending on size rating of the coupling. A precision cast and machined polyurethane insert (item C) fits between the hubs and is split axially so fitting and removal can be achieved without moving hubs. The holding ring, manufactured in steel, polyamide or bronze (item D) is fitted over the insert securing both insert and ring between hubs. The coupling requires no bolts or nuts.
Assembly & Disassembly
Once hubs (A) and (B) and holding ring (D) have been installed and aligned on the shafts the coupling hubs will not
have to be moved again during the life of the equipment. The elastic insert (C) can then be installed between the
parallel slots formed by the hub teeth.
With the insert in position, slide the retaining ring (D) into position over the polyurethane insert. Centrifugal force will expand the insert under operation ensuring a tight, secure fit inside the retaining ring.
Removing and replacing the coupling insert is very simple and requires no special tools. By removing the retaining ring, the insert can be quickly and easily removed and replaced without the need to undo screws, bolts or other fasteners.
The range of Samiflex Couplings has been approved under ATEX directive 94/9/EC – for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
