Taper Grid Coupling
MSB has helped many of its customer with expert product knowledge by suggesting right product for their applications. Since MSB provides customized solution, no power transmission issue can be unsolved.
MBS Taper Grid Couplings are recognizable due to their unique steel flexible grid running through the tapered hubs.
The great advantage of the Taper Grid Coupling is that the grid will absorb the shock, vibration, and overload that occur when the machine starts. Due to the flexibility of the grid, the focus of the force is spread across the surface of the tooth, reducing vibration and shock loads.
MSB’s taper grid coupling is torsionally flexible to absorb shock loads and vibration. When an overload occurs during use, the grid breaks and acts as a safety device to prevent damage to the shaft and machine. Also, when serious misalignment occurs due to machinery damage during use, the grid or hub breaks away, halting action and preventing the spread of damage. Vibration reduction more than doubles the service life of mechanical seals, bearings, and other parts. Taper Grid couplings produce excellent power transmission performance with low noise.
The Taper Grid couplings are manufactured according to industry standards, making them completely interchangeable.
Characteristic of Taper Grid Coupling
The movement of the grid in the lubricated grooves accommodates parallel misalignment, and the steel structure permits full functioning of the grid-groove action in damping shock and vibration
Under angular misalignment, the lubricated grid and hubs, along with the resilient grid-groove design, allow for consistent rocking and sliding motions with no power loss.
End floats for both driving and driven members are permitted because the grid slides freely in the lubricated grooves.
4) Torsional Flexibility
The great advantage of the Taper Grid Coupling is that the grid will absorb the shock, vibration, and overload that occur when the machine starts.
Due to the flexibility of the grid, the focus of the force is spread across the surface of the tooth, reducing vibration and shock loads.
In the past, flange or chain couplings were used for shaft connections, but now you can benefit by using the grid coupling in the following situations.
1) When it is necessary to prevent the transmission of vibration and shock.
2) When power must be transmitted normally, even when parallel, angular, or axial misalignment occurs.
3) To protect associated machinery where periodic overloads occur.
4) When forward/reverse rotation is required.
5) To reduce shock load.
