Staying competitive in today’s challenging business environment means that efficiency and productivity levels need to remain consistently high. This means that reducing the time needed for maintenance or repair is a crucial part in achieving these objectives
The Reich Multi Mont drive coupling allows speedy replacement of flexible transmission elements without the need to de-couple the mechanical drive train, eliminating the need for re-alignment. The Multi Mont Sella flexible jaw coupling is an easily customised concept for connecting shafts within a drive train to transmit torque.
No need for realignment
This pluggable design range now covers a torque capacity from 40Nm to 1,000,000Nm. The main benefit of the Multi Mont Sella flexible jaw coupling is the ability to change its flexible transmission elements without the time consuming work required to move machinery and then re-align it afterwards.
There is no need to uncouple the drive, as simply unbolting a retaining cap allows it to be slid out of the way, exposing the flexible transmission elements, which are then removed and replaced radially. This concept generates considerable savings in time compared with similar products, helping to maintain the highest levels of uptime and efficiency.
The Reich Multi Mont Sella coupling allows transmission elements to be changed without moving machinery.
The Multi Mont Sella flexible jaw coupling standard range is made from Spheroid Graphite (SG) Iron for the hubs and flanges, with steel for the retaining cap. The use of SG iron with its greater elasticity gives a more robust coupling which is less susceptible to damage and also allows the incorporation of keyless clamping elements, either internal locking assemblies or external shrink discs. The keyless clamping method of locating a coupling hub on to a shaft offers many advantages over traditional methods such as keyways, splines & thermal shrink fits.
A Natural/Synthetic Rubber mix is used for the flexible transmission elements. Natural rubber is proven to be the best material for damping, so the Multi Mont Sella flexible jaw coupling can be used where torsional vibration is present. The standard flexible elements have a temperature range of -40°C to 100°C and for higher temperatures silicone elements with a temperature range of -70°C to 120°C are available.
Reich Kupplungen GmbH has developed the Multi Mont Sella flexible jaw coupling into a versatile product with many variants as standard, including shaft to shaft; shaft to flange; flange to flange; with brake drum or with brake disc versions, and there is also a standard version with the very popular taper bush centre.
Designers and engineers have taken advantage of the unit’s adaptable design to easily combine the coupling with other mechanical power transmission products such as torque limiters, clutches, freewheels and fluid couplings to create bespoke drive solutions. Designers and engineers who have demanding applications requiring ATEX certification can now specify the new standard ATEX Multi Mont Sella flexible jaw coupling.
There is also a high-speed version of Multi Mont Sella flexible jaw coupling made from high-grade aluminium and is capable of speeds up to 20000rpm.
