Fenner Tyre Coupling
MSB Tyre couplings provide all the desirable features of an ideal flexible coupling, including Taper Lock fixing. The MSB Tyre coupling is a “torsionally elastic” coupling offering versatility to designers and engineers with a choice of flange combinations to suit most applications. The flanges are available in either F or H version Taper Lock fitting or bored to size B. With the addition of a spacer flange, the coupling can be used to accommodate the standard distance between shaft ends and facilitate pump maintenance.
Fenner Tyre couplings can accommodate maximum misalignment in all planes without imposing undue loads on adjacent bearings. The excellent shock-absorbing properties of the flexible tyre reduce vibrations & torsional oscillations.
Tyre couplings are types of flexible couplings.
We have all Fenner tyre coupling sizes available for your industrial application and can be immediately delivered.
MSB’s tyre coupling are available in natural rubber compounds for use in ambient temperatures between -50 C to +50 C.
Neoprene rubber compounds are available for use in adverse operating conditions e.g. oil or grease contaminations and can be used in temperatures of – 15 C to + 70 C.
F.R.A.S. tyres are available for use when fire-resistance and antistatic (F.R.A.S.) properties are required.
The range includes couplings with torque capacityupto12606Nm. and bore diameters upto 190 mm.
Handles parallel, angular and axial displacements, either singly or in any combination. They can accommodate parallel misalignment upto6mm,angular misalignment upto4 and end float upto8mm.
Cushions against destructive shock loads protecting the complete system, preventing expensive breakdowns and
lengthens machine life.
FREE OF BACKLASH
Does not create ‘snatch’ on take up of the drive.
Requires neither special tools nor skilled labour to assemble. Alignment is quickly checked by placing a straight edge across outside diameter of flanges. The split flexible tyre is then positioned in the flanges and the screws tightened into place.
Reduces vibration and torsional oscillations developed in internal combustion engines, the amplitude of which increases greatly at critical points in the speed range. MSB Tyre coupling dampens these destructive vibrations.
Because there are no moving parts, no lubrication is required. Periodic visual inspection of the tyre is all that is necessary.
EASY ELEMENT REPLACEMENT
To replace flexible element simply loosen the clamping screws, remove the tyre and replace with a new one. It is not necessary to move either driver or driven machine or coupling flanges.
Use of natural or Neoprene rubber compounds makes the MSB Tyre coupling suitable for use in most conditions. For fire hazard areas the F.R.A.S. tyre is recommended. This allows free flow of electricity between the two shafts to avoid static electricity build up.
