Product Description
Now theres a new 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 low-cost
replacement can be installed in minutes, without moving
either the prime mover or the driven equipment.

There are only four moving parts to Powerstream


couplings. The two identical hubs are made of high
strength cast iron, ductile iron or steel, each with six or
eight teeth, depending on size. The split insert, which is
made of specially compounded Urethane, fits over the
hub teeth. The retaining ring is made of Urethane or
steel, with two setscrews. The coupling requires no nuts
or bolts.

Design Features

Easy to install.

Changeout of coupling insert is faster than any other


coupling.

Custom compounded Urethane inserts can be provided


in a variety of durometers. This allows for both high
damping and high torque use.

Urethane insert is resistant to chemicals and oils.


Standard Insert: 40 to 180 F.

High-Temperature Inserts: up to 300 F.

No lubrication or maintenance.

Can rotate hubs independently for motor test.

No metal-to-metal contact.

The overall design is compact and can be supplied as a


close-coupled or drop-out design.

Large bore and torque capacity.

Horizontal and vertical operations, in either direction,


using standard inserts and retaining rings.

Hubs can be supplied either finish machined or with


blank bores.

Retaining ring supplied with setscrews (standard).

Drop-out design interchangeable with grid-type couplings


and other style elastomeric drop-outs.

Excellent power-to-weight ratio.

High misalignment capability.

Ideally suited for a vast range of applications in a wide


variety of industries.

Assembly and Disassembly


After hubs (1) and (2) and retaining ring (4) are installed
on shafts, the teeth are aligned parallel to each other,
spaced apart according to the table below.
Once installed, the hubs never need to be moved

again. The Urethane insert (3) can then be installed in

the slots formed by the parallel teeth.


When the insert is in position, align the pin in the

retaining ring with the slot in the insert, slide the

CUT LINE FOR SHORT PAGE

retaining ring (4) onto the Urethane insert and tighten


the setscrews into the counterbores in the insert.
Centrifugal force will expand the elastic insert to fit
tightly to the inside of the retaining ring, improving
system integrity.
To disassemble, loosen the setscrews in the retaining
ring and remove the ring. The insert can then be
quickly and easily removed and replaced. No special

tools, screws, bolts or other fasteners are needed.

Selection Procedure
METHOD
1. Select appropriate load factor from table SF1.
2. Select appropriate service factor from table SF2.
3. Calculate coupling rating from:
R = HP x 100 x SF2
N
Where:
HP = Driver rated power (horsepower)
N = speed (rpm).

8. Ensure that the ambient temperature is between


-40 to + 180F.
9. Specify distance between shaft ends (DBSE).

EXAMPLE

4. Select a coupling with the same or higher rating.

50 HP electric motor connected to a centrifugal pump


at 1800 rpm. (less than 25 starts/hour).
R = 50 x 100 x 1.00
1800
R = 2.8 HP/100 RPM

5. Confirm that the hub bore capacity is suitable.

Selection: A020

6. Confirm that the peak torque capability is suitable


for the application.

Maximum bore capacity: 2.125"

7. Check speed capability.

Coupling is capable of operating up to 5900 rpm,


unbalanced.
Ambient temperature is acceptable.DBSE is close-coupled.
