Misalignment Temperature Range Torque-Bore Capability Speed Capability Torsionally Soft Installation Cost Ease of Maintenance Repair Cost

Better alignment provides longer life and lowers the reaction forces imposed on bearings. In all situations, misalignment should be minimized as much as possible. Rubber seals and elastomeric elements are generally the most heat limited coupling component. Also, most nonsynthetic lubricants should not be used much above 220 F. This relationship describes torque and bore capabilities relative to the physical size of the coupling. This consideration may be important if the coupling must operate in a limited space. As the diameter of a coupling increases, its speed capability decreases due to centrifugal forces exerted on materials. Further, couplings with all machined parts can operate at higher speeds. Generally allows application wind-up to cushion shock loads and vibration. Torsionally Soft couplings help protect motor and reducer from shock loads in the driven equipment. Account of initial installation cost including equipment requirements, difficulty, alignment time and manpower. Based on frequency and difficulty of routine parts or coupling replacement, lubrication or other scheduled maintenance. Based on cost and difficulty of replacement of a failing or failed coupling.
