Bibby (Resilient or Grid or Spring) couplings can be used for applications with powers varying from as low as 1 h.p to about 100,000 h.p. per 100 rpm of the coupling. Correspondingly the couplings are available in varying sizes ranging from 100mm diameter to 4000mm diameter.
Bibby couplings are capable of taking axial and radialmisalignments to a very small extent only. It is necessary for the user to ensure that both axial and radialmisalignments are kept to the minimum possible.
» All metal construction having no fast wearing out components.
» Accurately machined. Dynamic balancing is normally not required.
» Torsionally flexible.Progressive torsional flexibility (due to curved profile) provides protection against shock load, impact load and vibration.
» Heat treated spring steel grid absorbs high impact shocks without loss of energy.
» Transmits full torque with dampened vibration and reduce peak loads.
» When over load occurs, grid fails and prevents failure of the shaft or machinery part connected to the coupling.
» Extended life of parts of machines (Mechanical seal and Bearing etc.)
» Easy to install.
Available in two variants
» Horizontally split covers : Easy access to grid. Ideal where space is tight
» Vertically split covers : Ideal for higher running speeds
