Flexible Couplings - Potential Unbalance Classification
|Publication Date:||10 August 2011|
This standard defines classes of flexible coupling potential unbalance, one of which the user must select in order to meet the needs of their system. The classes are established using weight and speed and system sensitivity to arrive at a mass displacement value that defines the potential unbalance. The standard defines types of unbalance, provides a method of selecting balance class, identifies contributors to potential unbalance, and provides a method of determining potential coupling unbalance. The balance classes are derived from consideration of the potential unbalance of the coupling.
