The flexible tyre possesses tremendous vibration and shock absorbing qualities and allows compensation for significant parallel and angular misalignment.
GB tyre couplings have shock and vibration dampening characteristics creating significant load reduction on machinery and bearings therby reducing costs and prolonging life. When used in conjunction with a GB serices spacer a GB tyre coupling easily accomodates standard 100, 140 & 180mm spacers. TaperFit bushes, spacer copuling, and a generous allowance for misalignment ensures GB tyre couplings are extremely easy to install.
1.From Table 1 Service factors determine the service factor.
2.Calculate the Design Power by multiplying the absorbed power of the driven machine by the service factor.
3.Determine the size GB tyre coupling by matching the design power to a power rating, (table below) that matches or exceeds the design power.
4.Confirm the demensions of the selected coupling fit your design requirements and, accomodate, shaft sizes.
B Flanges accomodate larger shaft sizes than F or H Flanges.
H Flanges require and wrench clearance while F & B Flanges do not.
