Couplings handle shaft misalignments - Zero-Max

May 27, 2010
The Schmidt 5D couplings are for applications requiring large axial, angular, and parallel-shaft misalignments.

The Schmidt 5D couplings are for applications requiring large axial, angular, and parallel-shaft misalignments. The couplings allow for easy adjustment without imposing heavy side loads on shafts, bearings, or other machine equipment. The coupling accommodates up to 5° of angular misalignment and 1.5-in. parallel misalignment while maintaining undisturbed power transmission at constant angular velocity. The design tolerates high shock and reversing loads with minimal or no maintenance required.

Standard and inverted hub configurations in bore sizes from 1.5 to 6.375 in. or 38 to 160 mm are available. Ten different model sizes handle speeds up to 1,000 rpm and torque from 2,800 to 500,000 lb-in.
