Drive Shaft

Long spacer-type flexible couplings are used on cooling tower applications to transmit power from the motor to the gear box and accommodate the misalignment that takes place between these two shafts during operation. These long spacer couplings require unique design and manufacturing considerations to assure proper oper
ation on these applications. The center spacers are usually fabricated of tubular construction to minimize weight on the connected shafts and provide adequate lateral rigidity.

 

Desiged long spacer-type flexible couplings that are used in cooling towers to transmit power from the motor to the gear box. Possible maximum pipe bend was determined using ANSYS software.
