Disc Couplings

General Overview

Lovejoy brings to market the best disc coupling yet to be offered. This disc coupling joins the wide range of Lovejoy couplings that are already in use throughout the world. Lovejoy has teamed up with its partner, Jaure of Zizurki, Spain to offer the disc coupling in several variations to cover all the industrial requirements for these low maintenance, long life couplings. The Lovejoy/Jaure disc coupling utilizes the latest design efforts through Finite Element Analysis, extensive testing of materials and couplings, and several years of operational experience in actual applications. The Lovejoy/Jaure disc
coupling is manufactured in the ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facilities of both companies.
The improvements in this coupling come from modifying the disc profile by using the latest Finite Element Analysis. As a result of the development work,
the Lovejoy/Jaure disc coupling 6 bolt type can operate at 1.5 misalignment (see graphs on following pages). The coupling can do so up to 50% torque
capability. The coupling imposes smaller forces on the bearings for a given misalignment and transmits more torque than other competitive couplings.

Types of couplings include the three piece industrial spacer unit used for general industrial applications and on OEM equipment. The 5-piece drop-out coupling
is specially suited for refinery and API type applications. The close coupled units fit in place of standard gear couplings. The SXGS reduced moment type and
the DIR drop out type can replace gear coupling floating shaft units by matching up to the existing gear coupling rigid hubs mounted on the driver and
driven equipment. Variations to these can also be made as shown on the back pages of this catalog.

Advantages of the Lovejoy/Jaure disc coupling


No need for lubrication and maintlenance.
The coupling can be inspected without disassembly. Additionally, the condition of the discs can be checked while the machine is running, using a strobe
light.*
The machine misalignment can be assessed.
Torsionally rigid without any backlash.
No wearing parts, high resistance to harsh environmental conditions.
Infinite life if properly aligned.
If misalignment is kept within specified limits, these couplings can last as long as the machines on which they are installed.
High power density (more torque for a given overall diameter).
It should be noted that disc couplings will impose high axial forces on the thrust bearings if the machines are not properly spaced. The piloting of the disc pack
to the hub is a key factor especially for high speed applications.
The Lovejoy/Jaure disc coupling uses fitted bolts as pilots, but for high speed applications has also found a straight-forward method of piloting the disc packs
to their hubs (see below). By machining rabbets in the washers that are used to unitize the disc pack,** it ensures the repeatability of residual unbalance
standards, as mandated by API 671.

General Overview

The angular misalignment between shafts can vary from 0 to 2 times as per the figure shown:

The discs of the Lovejoy/Jaure couplings are made of high-grade stainless steel (AISI-301), ensuring not only a high strength and high endurance to fatigue,
but also the resistance to most environmental conditions. Furthermore, discs can be covered with a low friction coefficient coating to improve the resistance to
fretting wear.
The coupling utilizes unitized disc packs with 6, 8 and 10 bolts. The greater the number of bolts, the higher the torque that can be transmitted, but the
coupling can accommodate less misalignment.
The disc couplings can be fitted with overload bushings which serve as an anti-flail device.

The design and manufacture of the disc coupling is integrated into a certified Quality System according to ISO 9001 to fulfill the high quality requirements of
Lovejoy/Jaure disc couplings.

Different disc profiles

D-3

The Lovejoy/Jaure couplings are offered in a variety of configurations to fit most applications. In addition, our engineering department can customize a
coupling to special requirements: close-cropped, drop-out, electrically insulated, vertical mounting, safety couplings, etc. A notable design is our Lovejoy/Jaure
reduced moment coupling, that not only has the anti-flail device mandated by API 610, but offers a low weight and a short center of gravity
to bearing distance.

Disc Couplings

Selection Data

Selection procedure
1. Select the coupling type.
2. Select the driven machine service factor SFA from Table 1.
3. Select the driving machine service factor SFD from Table 2.
Care should be taken when the driving machine is other than a standard electric motor or turbine. Some engines will impose extra fluctuations on the drive
system and allowance should be made accordingly. Please refer to Table 2. A torsional coupling may be required for diesel drives.
The two service factors SFA and SFD must be added resulting in the combined service factor SF.

SF = SFA + SFD

Driven machine service factor SFA Table 1.

3. Required minimum torque rating


The coupling selected is SX size 185-6 with a nominal torque of 29,205 in.-lbs., peak torque of 58,410, Ka = 0.145 in. and Kw = 1.5 .
4. Check peak torque (Coupling peak torque is 29,205 in. lbs. x 2 =58,410 in. lbs.)
5. Check expected misalignment .
6. Check maximum bores: SX 185-6 has a maximum bore of 3.13 inches, therefore this dimension is larger than the existing bores. The speed check shows
it to be less than allowable speed (1150 .rp.m < 6850 r.p.m).

Disc Couplings
Lovejoy/Jaure Disc Coupling Overview
Industrial Coupling Type SX
This is the standard coupling that includes two rigid hubs, a minimum length spacer and
two disc packs. The disc packs are bolted to the hubs and spacers at the time of coupling
installation. The disc packs are unitized. Variations in the spacer length are available. Stock
spacers meet industry standard lengths for various equipment. The coupling has two flex
planes (one at each disc pack) so it can accommodate parallel misalignment by the
angular misalignment in each disc pack. It is suitable for axial displacement within
specified limits. The SX coupling is available with 6, 8, & 10 bolt configuration. Bores up to
13 inches (330 mm) can be supplied on the largest sizes.
The SX coupling can be fitted with overload bushings, which protect the disc pack in case
of a torque overload. They also serve as an anti-flail device.

Industrial Coupling Type SU


This variation is the single flex unit with two hubs and one disc pack. It is suitable for
angular misalignment only. It is often combined with hollow shafts to make a long light
weight floating shaft coupling.

Industrial Coupling Type SXC, SXCS


This is the close coupled variation of the coupling. It is similar to the SX in that the disc
pack is attached when the coupling is installed. In the close coupled unit the hubs are
inside the spacer, which also makes it a reduced moment coupling. The coupling can be
assembled with one or both hubs inserted into the spacer. Note: putting the hub inside the
spacer requires a reduced hub diameter which reduces max. bore capability. This type of
Lovejoy/Jaure disc coupling with a horizontally split spacer is designated as the SXCS.

Drop Out Coupling Type DI, DILR


The drop out coupling has a factory assembled center section that includes the spacer,
two disc packs and two guard rings. The disc packs are bolted to the spacer and guard
ring at the factory and tightened to the proper torque. The entire package is mounted
between the shaft hubs at the installation. Unlike the type SX the disc packs do not have
to be attached when the coupling is installed. Disc packs are unitized. The coupling has
two flex planes (one at each disc pack) so it can accommodate parallel misalignment by
the angular misalignment in each disc pack. It is suitable for axial displacement within
specified limits. The DI coupling is available with 6 & 8 bolt configuration. Standard hubs
and jumbo hubs are available, allowing up to 15.94 inches (400 mm) max. bore on the
largest hub.

Coupling Type SXGS and DIR


These two coupling types are floating shaft couplings that fit in the place of the gear type
floating shaft units. The couplings are designed to match up with the installed rigid gear
coupling hubs that are mounted on the equipment shafts. Although matched by AGMA
gear coupling size, the torque, speed and overall diameter should be checked when
applying these replacement couplings. The SXGS is a reduced moment configuration and
the DIR is a drop out configuration.
Other types of Lovejoy/Jaure disc couplings are shown on pages 18 and 19 of this catalog.
Refer to the Lovejoy/Jaure applications department for special requirements that are not
shown in this catalog.

Disc Couplings

Installation Instructions

Installation of hubs. Machinery alignment.


Installation of disc packs and spacer.
1. Installation of the hubs on the machine shafts.
a) Straight shafts with keyway.
Lovejoy/Jaure supplies inch dimensioned hub bores to AGMA 9002-A96 interference fit.
b) Metric bored straight shafts.
Lovejoy supplies disc hubs machined with clearance to H7 or interference to P7. Lovejoy/Jaure recommends that the shaft should be machined for an
interference fit using tolerance s6 (ISO-286). Whenever shafts are already machined with a different tolerance from s6, Lovejoy will customize the hub bores.
The following tolerances are recommended by Lovejoy.
Shaft tolerance

k6
m6
n6

c) Clamping devices.
When clamping devices such as tapered bushings, shrink discs or locking rings are used, please contact the Lovejoy Application Engineering Department.

2. Machinery Alignment.
As long as the machines are aligned within the mounting specifications from this catalog, the disc couplings will operate for a long time. However, it should be
understood that the useful life of any disc pack coupling is directly influenced by the operating misalignment: the better the alignment, the longer the coupling
life.
Although the disc couplings can operate satisfactorily at the misalignment listed in the catalog, both the coupling life and machine bearing wear can be greatly
improved if the machines are aligned better than the maximum value that the coupling can accommodate. Lovejoy/Jaure recommends that the working
misalignment should not exceed 20% of the catalog values. Therefore, the following formulas show Lovejoy/Jaures recommendations for maximum
misalignment.
Three types of machine misalignment (offset, angular and axial) should be checked. Lovejoy/Jaure has the following recommendations:
The maximum offset misalignment that the disc coupling can accommodate is a function of the distance between the disc packs. For the configurations
SX, this distance is practically the same as the distance between the shaft ends. This statement is not valid for other configurations, such as SXC, DI,
SXGS, and DIR.
If shafts have an offset misalignment with minimum angular misalignment, the following maximum values for the offset are applicable.
Disc with 6 bolts
TIR ( disc pack to disc pack distance ) / 150
Disc with 8 bolts
TIR ( disc pack to disc pack distance ) / 300
Disc with 10 bolts
TIR ( disc pack to disc pack distance ) / 350
(NOTE: TIR is the Total Indicator Reading, which is twice the shaft offset )

D-26

Disc Couplings

Installation Instructions

The maximum angular misalignment at each disc pack is listed in the tables. This angular misalignment can be verified by measuring the flange-to-flange
distance (see figure below) and subtracting the smallest reading from the largest reading (Y-Z). The maximum value of (Y-Z) depends on the flange diameter
and therefore on the coupling size. Based on the data from the tables, the following maximum values for (Y-Z) are recommended:
(Y-Z) Coupling size / 7620
(Y-Z) Coupling size / 15420
(Y-Z) Coupling size / 17780

Disc with 6 bolts


Disc with 8 bolts
Disc with 10 bolts

Example: For Disc size 380-6 ( maximum angular misalignment of 1 ). (Y-Z) should not exceed 380/7620 = .05 inch.
The axial displacement allowable between shafts during installation should not exceed 20% of the allowable displacement given in the catalog. This
displacement is a function of the coupling size and the number of bolts utilized. The larger the size, the larger axial displacement. The axial displacement
creates large stresses in the discs. For a long life, it is recommended that the discs are as close as possible to being flat. Therefore, the movements of the
shafts as caused by thermal expansion should be carefully considered. For instance, if the distance between shaft ends changes by .196 in. (the shafts are
coming closer to each other) from cold to hot machines, the distance between shaft ends with cold machines should intentionally be made larger by .196 in.
when the coupling is installed.

3. Installation of disc packs and spacer.


The installation of the coupling components depends on the type of disc coupling: the only tools needed are regular wrenches or sockets and a torque wrench.
Tightening the bolts of a coupling to specification is very important.

Disc Couplings

Installation Instructions

a) Standard configuration. SX and SXO types.


The only bolts to be installed and tightened are the ones that attach the disc packs to the hubs and spacer. Place the spacer and install the bolts with their
heads at the flange and not at the disc pack. The nuts shall be turned with the torque wrench to the specified torque, while the heads of the bolts are held
stationary.
b) Close coupled configuration. SXC and SXCO types.
The SXC coupling type was created for use with machines that have the shafts too close for the use of the standard SX coupling. The outside diameter of the
hubs was reduced to be inserted in the inside of the hole of the disc pack.
To install the hubs on their shafts, the shafts must be spaced apart at least the length of one hub (see dimension LS in the table). To install the coupling, the
disc packs can be first attached with their bolts to the spacer, then slide over one of the hubs and attached to it. Next, the machines must be brought in
position so that the second disc pack can be attached to its hub.
The machine alignment can now be performed. Because the spacer covers the shaft ends, the axial spacing must be checked by measuring the flange to
flange distance (dimension PW in tables). The offset and angular misalignments can be checked as previously described.
The bolts that attach the disc packs to the hubs and spacer must be tightened to specification (using a torque wrench at the nuts) while the bolt heads are held
stationary.
c) Drop-out configuration. DI type.
The drop-out configuration allows the installation and removal of the coupling assembly without the need to remove the hubs from their shafts. The coupling is
received from Lovejoy/Jaure fully assembled with the bolts tightened to specifications. If, however, there is a need to disassemble the coupling assembly (in
case the disc packs need to be replaced) the nuts should be tightened to specification using a torque wrench while the bolt heads are held stationary.
Machine alignment should be done before the coupling assembly is in place.
The coupling assembly will not fit between the hubs as long as the shaft-to-shaft distance was correctly set. The coupling ends should be brought together by
compressing the disc packs using the shipping screws so that the assembly will fit between the male rabbets.

Once in position, the coupling will snap in place and the bolts that attach the assembly to the shaft hubs must be tightened to Lovejoy/Jaure specifications using
a torque wrench. This operation must be carefully performed as these bolts transmit the full coupling torque.
To remove the coupling assembly, first remove all the bolts that retain it to the hubs. Then compress the assembly by introducing the existing flange bolts in the
shipping holes and press the coupling away from the male rabbets.
d) Reduced moment coupling with spacer according to AGMA 516, SXGS type.
The reduced moment configuration is used whenever the shaft stresses require that the center of gravity of the coupling is very close to the machine bearings.
This configuration also allows either machine to be removed by dropping the spacer without the need to disturb the disc-pack assemblies.
The installation of this coupling requires the following steps:
Install the hubs on their shafts.
Measure and adjust the shaft-to-shaft (BSE) distance.
Align the machine shafts as previously described.
Attach one disc pack and a short sleeve at each hub, by tightening the nuts to specifications, while holding the bolt heads stationary.
Place the spacer between the two sleeves. It should fit without interference or without a gap remaining between the flanges. Correct the machine spacing if
necessary, as any axial displacement can adversely affect the couplings long term performance.
Insert the flange bolts and tighten the nuts to specifications using a torque wrench and adaptor while holding the bolt heads stationary.
Recheck the alignment and correct if necessary.
e) Drop-out coupling with floating assembly, flanges according to AGMA 516, DIR type.
Machine alignment should be done before the coupling assembly is in place. The drop-out configuration allows the installation and removal of the coupling
assembly without the need to remove the hubs from their shafts. The coupling is received from Lovejoy/Jaure fully assembled with the bolts tightened to
specifications. If, however, there is a need to disassemble the coupling assembly (in case the disc packs need to be replaced) the nuts should be tightened to
specification using a torque wrench while the bolt heads are held stationary.
The coupling assembly will fit between the hubs as long as the shaft-to-shaft distance was correctly set. Once in position, the nuts that attach the assembly to
the shaft hubs must be tightened to specifications using a torque wrench and adaptor while the bolt heads are held stationary. This operation must be carefully
performed, as these bolts transmit the full coupling torque.
