CLAW COUPLING SLEEVE AND SHEAR PIN
coupling is a torsionally flexible, puncture proof claw coupling with removable intermediate part comprising the claw rings and the buffer ring. It compensates for angular, radial and axial shaft misalignments within defined limits. The coupling transmits torque through elastic buffers loaded in shear. These buffers come in Perbunan (Pb) or polyurethane (Vk), as a standard VkR, and are connected to each other to form an elastic buffer ring. This buffer ring dampens shocks and torsional vibrations and is resistant to oil. Buffer rings made of Perbunan are electrically conductive. The two-parted construction of both coupling halves allows radial mounting and dismounting of the intermediate part. The buffer ring can, therefore, be replaced without having to displace the connected machines. When the intermediate part is removed, it is easily possible to check the rotational direction of the drive. The coupling is suitable for use in every direction of rotation and installation position.
