Are You Selecting The Right Coupler For Your Application?

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 von admin

OPW Engineered Systems is pleased to announce that Dave Morrow, its Director of Product Management, will be giving a presentation at this year’s Hose+Coupling World Expo Americas, which will be held from Oct. 16-17 at the George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, TX.

At his presentation, titled “Are You Selecting The Right Coupler For Your Application?,” Morrow will offer a comprehensive look at the factors that could contribute to product loss and potential harm to people and the environment when loading and unloading hazardous chemicals, of which there are more than one million shipments in the United States every day. He will specifically note the pros and cons of every category of chemical-coupling technology, with an emphasis on ensuring overall safety when handling hazardous or dangerous fluids in high-pressure and high-temperature applications.

Technical paper by Jochen Pelzer

The coupling of drives with work machines like pumps, fans and compressors is simple – at least at first glance. Because, while for selection of the right coupling knowledge of torque and speed are theoretically sufficient, practice shows that plenty of experience and high-quality products increase availability and reduce service costs.

Couplings in Pump Applications

Friday, January 26th, 2018 von admin

The Sure-Flex Plus couplings have new elastomeric sleeves providing higher performance and enhanced durability due to significant improvements in proprietary EPDM and Neoprene materials. Development testing confirmed that the new EPDM and Neoprene rubber sleeves enable a 30 % increase in the torque rating when compared to the previous generation sleeves. Sure-Flex Plus couplings provide torsional flexibility, while the 4-way flexing action absorbs virtually all types of

  • shock,
  • vibration,
  • misalignment and
  • end float.

Technical Paper: API-all-steel coupling with optimised performance

Marc Egelwisse

In the Arpex all-steel multi-disk coupling the Flender GmbH, a 100 %-held Siemens subsidiary, is marketing a coupling that has proved itself over many years. Marc Egelwisse, product manager for Arpex couplings, and his team have further developed this series with a focus on three aspects:

  • increase in the specific power,
  • optimisation of the areas of application and
  • reduction of complexity of the type series.

The results show it was worth it:

  • 70 to 100 % higher torque,
  • 40 % greater angular misalignment,
  • 10 % higher maximum speed and
  • 14 instead of the 42 design variants existing hitherto.

“Because of the high torque capacity and the optimised speed and bore capacity of the new N-Arpex we are confident that we are offering what is at present the world’s best-performing coupling”, says Egelwisse.

OPW: New Dry Disconnect Couplings

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017 von admin

This range of dry disconnect couplings, named Twist-Lok, has been specifically designed to be fully interchangeable with other dry disconnect couplers. The Twist-Lok has also been manufactured in accordance with the Nato Stanag 3756 standard, and features 316 stainless-steel construction and an integral heavy-duty swivel to aid connection and minimize hose wear. In addition, this new coupler is designed with safety features for the operator, such as the ability to be fully interlocked when connected, while it includes a locking mechanism in the open position. Product selectivity is also available via mechanical keying to minimize risk of cross contamination.

Siemens: All-steel multi-disk couplings acc. API and Atex

Friday, June 23rd, 2017 von admin

Siemens presented an additional series in the range of torsionally rigid all-steel disc couplings: the new N-Arpex coupling with improved performance characteristics. An optimized disc pack and a revised component design facilitate the transmission of higher torques and speeds as well as a higher bore capacity with standard hubs. All-steel couplings can be used in all applications that require reliable torque transmission in set-ups with shaft displacement.

Reich: Flexible couplings for Diesel driven fire pumps

Thursday, July 30th, 2015 von admin

reichkleinThe highly flexible VSK coupling is an integral component for connecting the combustion engine to the right-angle gear drive of the fire pump system. By using the VSK highly flexible coupling, the drive train can be protected from dynamic overload, reduce resonance-induced vibratory torques and provide a convenient connection between the combustion engine and drive shaft.
