Couplings

The MagnaDrive Coupling Product Line The new standard for equipment protection

The MagnaDrive industrial coupling product line is targeted at constant speed applications on 2 to 5,000 horsepower motors with speeds up to 7,000 RPM. Like the MagnaDrive ASD, MagnaDrive Couplings incorporate an air gap to isolate the motor from the load. This eliminates vibration transfer, equipment damage and downtime, and the need for costly and time-consuming laser alignment. Further, MagnaDrive Couplings are virtually maintenance free requiring only an annual inspection that can be performed while the equipment is in operation.

There are three product families in the MagnaDrive Coupling product line:

Fixed Gap Coupling (FGC) MagnaDrive's standard coupling family is available in two styles depending upon the particular application. The MagnaDrive Fixed Gap Coupling (FGC) :

  • Lowest Total Cost of Ownership
  • Low maintenance
  • Efficient torque transfer
  • Accepts greater misalignment
  • Eliminates vibration transfer between motor and load
  • Increases seal and bearing life
  • Permits shock loading
  • Simple installation
  • Predetermined Fixed Air Gap
  • Suitable for High Starting Inertia / Torque
  • Slender Design fits also with Non-standard
  • Distance Between Shaft Ends (DBSE)
  • 3 5000 HP up to 7000 RPM

MagnaGuard Delay Coupling Family (MGD) Some applications, such as bulk handling conveyors, require a delayed-start capability in order to extend system equipment life. MagnaDrive's advanced cushioned start and stop coupling family has all of the benefits of the standard couplings, plus:

  • Ability to delay full torque transfer
  • Cushioned start and stop
  • Design is Specific for a Cushioned & Delay Start
  • For applications with Pulsating and/or Shock Loading
  • Partially disengagement to protect equipment
  • Vertical and horizontal Installation
  • 10 2,000 HP up to 4500 RPM

MagnaGuard Torque Limiting Coupling Family (MGTL) In torque overload situations, the MGTL automatically disengages, shutting down the system and preventing damage or even destruction of the motor and driven equipment. When the jam is cleared, the coupling automatically resets itself to resume operation. MagnaDrive's advanced overload protection coupling family has all of the benefits of the advanced cushioned start and stop couplings, plus:

  • Overload torque protection
  • Self-resetting
  • Design is Specific for a Cushioned & Delay Start
  • For applications with Pulsating and/or Shock Loading
  • Secure Coupling When There is Little Super-vision
  • Advanced Overload Torque Protection
  • Self-Resetting
  • 10 2,000 HP up to 4500 RPM
