RIGIFLEX®-N couplings are used on such applications which require a reliable and maintenance-free torque transmission with shaft displacement at the same time.
RIGIFLEX®-N was developed for pump drives in particular. This coupling system corresponds to the regulations of API 610 and may be supplied in accordance with API 671 optionally. (API = American Petroleum Institute)
Torques from 240 Nm to 280.000 Nm are available in 15 sizes for an optimum adjustment to the different applications.
RIGILFEX®-N laminae are waisted laminae sets arranged in layers. They are connected to the hubs or flanges, respectively, in an absolutely backlash-free fit by means of positive-locking set screws. The number of the layers of individual laminae allows to vary torques, displacement figures and stiffness for special designs.
Since our main idea with the development of RIGIFLEX®-N was to comply with the standards of API 610 and API 671, the spacer is secured by a safety catch, too.
In case that the laminae break the spacer remains within the coupling.
In general the removable part is supplied along with a laminae set preassembled by the manufacturer.
