gas turbines. and high quality components help to reduce the potential unbalance in the coupling assembly. HP-2 .  Components are standardized. but the special requirements of certain applications will customize each design. While standard components do exist. Hubs. Fasteners are weigh balanced in sets. and spacers are alloy steel. Fasteners are weigh balanced. Failure to follow the instructions and precautions can result in severe injury or death. the unique requirements of individual applications will customize a coupling design. yet design flexibility allows for modifications to specific applications. HP Features and Benefits:       Dynamically balanced.High Performance Gear Couplings Overview Lovejoy High Speed and Engineered Special Gear Couplings The High Performance group of gear couplings consists of coupling designs that require additional engineering. Many of the components are standardized. Lovejoy Engineered Couplings Our other product lines of engineered couplings are designed to suit special applications. sleeves. Lovejoy/Sier-Bath High Speed Couplings The Lovejoy/Sier-Bath F Series High Speed gear couplings are designed for exacting high speed.  Available in sizes from 1 through 30 depending on model. ! WARNING You must refer to page iv for Important Safety Instructions and Precautions for the selection and use of these products. These couplings require specific customer input to properly design the coupling to suit the application. etc. precision machined tolerances. Body fitted bolts in reamed holes. Major diameter fit gear teeth. Features and Benefits:  Custom design assistance. High speed couplings are dynamically balanced as assemblies and match marked. Precision manufactured close tolerances. steam turbines. Piloted gear fit. Typical applications include high speed centrifugal and axial flow compressors. high efficiency performance beyond the ranges and limits of standard coupling specifications. test stands.

if required. High Speed Ultra Precision—“FHSPAA” The Lovejoy/Sier-Bath High Speed Ultra Precision gear couplings are made of Nitralloy 135 modified with a core hardness of RC 32-36 and they are magnetic particle inspected. In addition. specify Class AN and a surface hardness of 85. For nitrided gear teeth. They have close tolerances and precision manufactured mating surfaces with bores ground to accurate tolerances.5 minimum on the Rockwell 15N scale. Component balancing is available and may result in lower maximum speeds. gear couplings are dynamically balanced. These gear couplings are dynamically balanced and have a piloted gear fit to insure balance integrity during operation. and they are magnetic particle inspected. High Speed Standard —“FHSA” The Lovejoy/Sier-Bath High Speed Standard gear couplings are made of alloy steel with a core hardness of RC30-35. specify Class MAN and a surface hardness of 85. The low overhung moment reduces bearing loads. They are precision manufactured with ground bores and concentricity for dynamic stability. gear couplings are dynamically balanced. have piloted gear fit. They also have low moment of inertia and are extremely light weight. For nitrided gear teeth. They also have a larger shaft capacity. These couplings are dynamically balanced. and have body-fitted bolts in reamed holes. Balancing bands will be included.5 minimum on the Rockwell 15N scale. For nitrided gear teeth. In addition. They also have low moment of inertia and are extremely lightweight. They are precision manufactured with ground bores and close concentricity for dynamic stability.High Performance Gear Couplings Overview Lovejoy/Sier-Bath “F” Series High Speed Couplings High Speed Close Coupled—“FHS” This coupling is made from AISI 1045 steel. The maximum speed is for assembly balanced couplings. they have body-fitted bolts with reamed holes. and have body-fitted bolts in reamed holes. if required. High Speed Precision—“FHSAA” HP The Lovejoy/Sier-Bath High Speed Precision gear couplings are made of alloy steel with a core hardness of RC 30-35 and are magnetic particle inspected. For nitrided gear teeth. High Speed Marine—“FHSMA” The Lovejoy/Sier-Bath High Speed Marine gear couplings have a core hardness of RC 30-35 and are magnetic particle inspected. have a piloted gear fit. specify Class PAAN and a surface hardness of 90 minimum on the Rockwell 15N scale. specify Class AAN and a surface hardness of 85.5 minimum on the Rockwell 15N scale. HP-3 . The low overhung moment reduces bearing loads. Balancing bands will be included. They have close tolerances and precision manufactured mating surfaces with bores precision-ground for extremely high accuracy. and have body-fitted bolts in reamed holes. The design is similar to the standard “F” except the components are machined to tighter tolerances and controlled fits to allow higher operating speeds. have a piloted gear fit. In addition.
