Falk Wrapflex Couplings Alignment and Operating Limits

Type R10 Sizes 2R - 80R

(Page 1 of 2)

TYPE R COUPLING ALIGNMENT AND OPERATING LIMITS


For optimum performance, always align couplings within the
installation" limits listed in Table 1. Maximum life and
minimum maintenance for the coupling and connected
machinery will result if couplings are accurately aligned. For
applications requiring greater misalignment, refer application
details to the Factory.

Values stated in Table 1 are based upon the use of the GAPS
listed, standard coupling components and standard
assemblies.
Angular Misalignment is Dimension X minus Y as illustrated
below.
Parallel Misalignment is distance P between the hub center
lines as illustrated.

Angular misalignment is dimension "X minus Y". Parallel misalignment is distance "P" between the hub centerlines.
Q "BE" dimension tolerance is +/- 10% of "Normal Gap" listed. Hubs can be mounted for shorter than standard BE lengths, as long as shaft ends do not extend into

the "Gap".

(Lines represent maximum limits of combined angular and


parallel misalignment. Allowable misalignment is any point
that falls within the triangular area under each line.)

l For R10 hub Sizes 2R to 50R, clearance fits with single keyway and two setscrews (one over keyway, one at 90 degrees) are standard. For R10 hub Sizes 60R to 80R,

interference fits with single keyway and NO setscrews are standard. Clearance fits for Sizes 60R to 80R are custom and will include two setscrews.
n Do not exceed tightening torque values listed in Table 2. For nylon covers, tighten fasteners until snug tight only. For steel covers, tighten fasteners until snug

tight plus 1/8 turn.
