New Brochure Available From SKF Steel Couplings On Its OK Coupling

A new brochure detailing applications of differing sizes of keyless OK couplings is available free from SKF Steel Couplings of Avon, Conn. The four-page brochure, printed on heavy, silver-coated stock, contains illustrations of the OK coupling connections on a marine vessel's shaft lines, the camshaft of a diesel engine's fuel injection pump, and on the shafts of a nuclear power plant's primary coolant pump.

The OK coupling's easy-on/easyoff, mounting/dismounting technique is explained, as are various applications for the adjustable OKA-HB coupling that permits replacement of one-piece seals and axial length adjustment during installation and servicing; the OKFHB flanged coupling that connects cylindrical machine shafts to reducer flanges and also couples two different diameter shafts; and the OKFA-HB extended flange coupling that allows axial length final fit-up at the coupling, eliminating last-minute machining of the flange face. The OKFA-HB also provides easy access to the control rod at a gearbox flange when used in controllable- pitch propeller systems.
