-INTRODUCTION
(
\

The steel tape red grid coupling is similar in nature to a steel gear coupling, except the connecting sleeve is replaced by a flexible chrome-vanadium alloy leaf spring grid. The steel hbs are
cut with profiled slots, llowing the grid to engage circumferentially. The grid "springs" deflect
under trque, distributing the peak torque load over a large angle of rotation. The inherent property of torsional softness allows the coupling to absorb shock loads.

OUTPUT-

LightLoad
The grid contacts near the outer
edges of the hub teeth: A long
span between the points of contact remains free to flex under
_Ioad.

ADVANTAGES

. Overload conditions cause the


..,

"
grid element to shear,
like-a
mechanical fuse.

. Grid can be changed "in-place",

saving time.

. Low maintenance

As the load increases, the distance between the contact


points on the hub teeth is short-

. Quiet operation

ened, but a fre_espan still


remains to cushion the load.

Allows for parallel/angular mis.,.


alignment and permits end float

Torsional.flexibility
Shock Load
The coupling isflexible within
its rated capacity. Under
extremeoverloads,
the grid

bears fully on the hub teeth and


transmits fullload directly.

FEATURES OF THE GUARDEXCOUPLING

DOUBLE CROWNED TOOTH

I
Large contact area to provide low contact pressure and to reduce stress of shaft misalignment.
Load distributed near the center of the tooth for maximum strength.
~
Low frition for a smooth flow of power withoutthe need for lubrication-maintenance
free.
Free axial movement of the coupling parts to compensate for shaft thermal changes and future alignment problems.

1. Nominal torque ratings allow tor 180F ambient, tull misalignment


and/or maximum RPM.
2. Starting torque and braking loads should not exceed listed maximum
torque.
3. Intermittent,
transient peak loads should not exceed three times
nominal torque.
4. Applications
with unitorm loading, well-aligned
shafts, and low speeds
will allow tor operation at maximum torque levels.
