Product Description
The Metastream L Series range of membrane couplings
has been specifically designed to provide a cost
effective solution for demanding industrial applications.
The couplings are selected by their torque capacity,
with the scalloped hub providing the right size
for the shaft.

Easy to install

Operates in either direction

Hubs supplied either finish machined or solid

Coated carbon steel hardware for corrosion protection

Choice of hub configuration to suit the shaft diameter

Complies with ATEX 95 for use in hazardous


environments on Group II Category 2 Equipment

Design Features
I

Fit and Forget: The L series coupling is designed for


infinite life, and with correct machinery alignment often
outlasting the machines it is connected to

Overload Protection: The coupling is fitted with


overload collars to protect the membranes in the
event of severe torsional overload

Low Imposed Loads: The membranes have been


designed to optimise their torque capability, whilst
minimising the reaction forces due to misalignment
so reducing machinery vibration and maximising
bearing life

Zero Maintenance: The coupling has no relative


moving parts, and hence requires no lubrication
or maintenance

No Backlash: The coupling design, with fitted bolts,


and torsionally stiff membranes ensures that there is
zero backlash. This makes the coupling ideal for
drives such as machine tool indexers, printing
processes, packaging, and all applications where
constant speed without fluctuations is crucial

Selection Procedure (Metric)
1. Select appropriate load factor from table SF1.

8. Check whether additional dynamic balancing is required.

2. Select appropriate service factor from table SF2.

9. Specify Distance Between Shaft Ends (DBSE).

3. Calculate coupling torque TN from

Example:

TN = PN x 9.55 x SF2
n
Where:
PN = rated power for driven equipment (kW)

185 kW electric motor to a 160 kW to a paper mill calender


at 1450 rpm.
SF1 = H

SF2 = 2.00

TN = 185 x 9.55 x 2.00

n = speed (rpm).

1450

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

TN = 2.45 kNm

5. Check the hub bore capacity is suitable, if not select


a larger size coupling.

Selection: LSES - 0265

6. Check peak torque capability is suitable


for application.

Coupling is capable of operating up to 4400 rpm.

7. Check speed capability.

Maximum bore capacity: 90 mm.

Additional dynamic balancing is not required.

3. Calculate coupling torque TN from

9. Specify Distance Between Shaft Ends (DBSE).

1. Select appropriate load factor from table SF1.

Example:
R = HP x 100 x SF2
N
Where:
HP = rated power for driven equipment (HP)
N = speed (rpm).
4. Select a coupling with the same or higher rating.

250 HP electric motor to a paper mill calender at 1800


rpm.
SF1 = H

SF2 = 2.00

R = 250 x 100 x 2.00


1800

5. Check the hub bore capacity is suitable, if not select


a larger size coupling.

R = 27.8 HP per 100 rpm

6. Check peak torque capability is suitable


for application.

Selection: LSES - 0265

7. Check speed capability.

Coupling is capable of operating up to 4400 rpm.

Maximum bore capacity: 3.375 inches.

Additional dynamic balancing is not required.

These values are maximums for each type of misalignment. It is recommended that the coupling is initially aligned to 10% of these values to
allow for inevitable movements during the life of the machines.
* The values given are for each membrane bank. ** These values are based on the standard minimum distance between shaft ends. (Min).

Standard Bore & Key Options


To assist in rapid order processing, a selection of standard bored hubs to H7 tolerance with keyways to DIN 6885
