ESCOGEAR HIGH-SPEED SERIES GEAR COUPLINGS
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ESCOGEAR HIGH-SPEED SERIES COUPLINGS
Multicrown gearing version
Application-wise customized with weight-optimized flanges and hubs
Oil or grease lubricated
Balanced for high rotation speed up to 20,000rpm
The Escogear High-Speed series couplings are lubricated type couplings, also called high-performance gear couplings. Used in high-power/ high-speed applications, they incorporate specific and high-precision gear geometrics as well as a dedicated cooling / lubrication system based on grease or oil to allow for long continuous running periods without maintenance.
The couplings design may differ as a function of the application and the characteristics of machines to be connected and hence full data are required for coupling design.
The gearing parts are generally made out of forged high-alloy steel and gears are surface hardened and mostly nitrided. Balancing is required, as well as compliance with API 671. These couplings generally operate at high temperatures and thus require special provisions for thermal expansion of the machinery elements in line with the basic features of the couplings.
The Escogear High-Speed series is robust and reliable. It meets the specific requirements of the various rotating machines in the medium and heavy industries.
THE ESCO ADVANTAGE
