The MAX-C® resilient coupling is available in three styles-K2, WB and CB. Fourth style-UB (urethane cylindrical block design) has been
superseded by the K2, but is still available for sale.
K2: Urethane wedge shaped blocks. Used on electric motor driving cranes, pumps, feed rolls, fans, conveyors bow thruster, manipulators, etc.
WB: Rubber block in wedge shape. The rubber blocks come in various shore hardness and are typically custom-engineered for an application.
They are used on synchronous and variable frequency motors driving, for example:
- Klin drives
- Steel mill main drives
- ID and FD fans
These come in a wide range of sizes and torque capacity.
CB: Rubber blocks are cylindrical shape also ,available in various hardness, like the WB design. They are available in various sizes and
torque ranges, typically custom-engineered.
They are primarily used in the following applications:
- Diesel engines driving generator sets
- Fire pumps
- Torque converters
- Marine drives
- Drill rigs
- Main propulsion
- Provides resilience and damping for severe applications.
- Can increase drive train and gear component life.
- Does not need routine maintenance.
- Available up to 79.5" (2.2M) OD.
- Peak torque capacity of 56 million in-lb. (6383 kN-m).
- Maximum bore up 34" (864mm).
- Off-the-shelf and custom designed for application.
- Resilient blocks available in rubber or urethane - depending on the application.
