Nylon couplings are compact and can operate over a wide temperature range at speeds up to 5,000 RPM and are effectively used in applications such as Motor/ Generator sets, pump sets, and many lightAtoAmedium duty industrial coupling applications. The resilient nature of the nylon material makes the contact of the hubs and sleeves almost frictionless. Since no lubrication is used, the coupling can readily be adapted to many applications including vertical and blind installations where the slipA together components offer easy inspection and adjustment. The smooth and hard surface (crystalline structure) and the high thermal stability and resistance to lubricants, fuels, hydraulic fluids, dissolvents etc. make polyamide an ideal material for components stressed by sliding, particularly for the coupling production.
Operationally, the coupling offers a minimum backlash solution that will operate in ambient temperature environments from A20° to 65°C. Nylon Sleeve couplings have precision molded sleeves and hubs with no bolts, pins, flanges, or protrusions to affect balance or safety. The nylon sleeve permits misalignment up to ±1°. These couplings are suitable for vertical as well as horizontal applications as they have accommodated axial, parallel, and angular shaft displacement /misalignment. The nylon gear couplings come with an easy to assemble and simple to install axial plug. These low inertiaA high efficiency offering couplings are light weight and compact in size. The combination of nylon and steel make them low maintenance and antiA abrasive in nature. With constant torque and wellAaligned shafts, Tucson nylon gear couplings can be used up to the maximum torque.
