No Lubrication Required For Falk 'Torus' Couplings

—Literature Available The Falk Corporation of Milwaukee, Wis., reports that its Torus Type WA couplings with all-steel hubs never need lubrication. And no maintenance except for routine inspections.

The couplings also feature high torsional flexibility and easy installation.

Falk's unique design—utilizing a non-lubricated, soft and resilient element of U-shaped multi-ply nylon and rubber—provides the torsional flexibility to absorb reasonable amounts of shock loads, vibration, misalignment and end float.

The larger the coupling, the greater the number of plies that are used.

The tough, rubber-nylon element is not affected by dust, dirt or ambient temperatures from —40°F to + 150°F ( —40°C to +66°C).

Hubs are available in a wide choice of popular bores (Vs-inch to 8 inches), or bored for taper bushings.

Long steel hubs are offered for mill motors, other tapered shafts, and for overhung hubs.

Torus couplings are stocked in 15 different sizes to match light to severe duty applications, and are rated for 540 to 141,800 lb./in.

torque and .86 to 225.0 hp per 100 rpm. Falk also offers fluid, "Steelflex" and gear-type couplings.

The Falk Corporation, Milwaukee- based subsidiary of Sundstrand Corporation, is a major manufacturer of industrial power machinery, including gear drives, couplings and backstops.
