Flange Couplings FK series examples


The main function of the rigid flange coupling (FK) is the safe and backlash-free connection of two shafts by means of friction. For example, between a drive shaft and an agitator shaft. Flange couplings are directly separable at the flanges. The used shrink discs generate a backlash-free connection by pressing the flange-hubs onto the shafts. This connection is mainly used to transmit torque. The shrink discs do not transmit any forces and/or moments between the shafts and hubs, they just provide the necessary forces. They are not in the flow of forces. It is installed by sliding the flanges onto the shaft ends and subsequent tightening of the shrink disc. Thereafter the flanges are connected by bolting. The rigid flange couplings are supplied ready for installation. To achieve proper operation and a sufficiently high coefficient of friction, the contact surfaces between the shaft extensions and flangehubs, as well as the contact surfaces of the flanges, must be free of grease,...
