WESTCAR ESCO DISC COUPLINGS DLC - SERIESCHARACTERISTICS OF THE ESCODISC DLC SERIES COUPLINGS
Disc couplings are of an all-metal, non-lubricated design and are torsionally stiff. The torque is transmitted by means of discs, which are alternatively mounted (on the same bolt circle) to the drive and driven flange of the disc pack assembly.
The misalignment capacity depends on the pack thickness, the disc material, the amount of drive bolts and the free span of the material between the drive bolts.
The total torque capacity depends on the disc pack thickness, the total number of drive bolts and their bolt circles.
Disc couplings will in most cases have two flexible elements and a spacer. As all parts are positively connected, this disc coupling ensures good inherent balancing properties and is therefore often used at motor speeds without additional balancing. Escodisc couplings meet the API 610 standards.
The Escodisc DLC series is built for infinite life and to meet the demands of the market for efficiency, lower maintenance and reduced life cycle costs. They are designed for low to medium torque / speed / duty applications (up to 1,600 Nm) where a maintenance-free coupling is preferred.The Escodisc DLC series offers:
- A single disc concept of optimized shape
- A simplified design
- The most economical solution
