High Speed Coupling Failure Analysis
This paper deals with the design functions and case histories of gear couplings. A brief discussion of the various basic design features of gear couplings and their lubrication system is presented. This is followed by various case histories and the probable cause of their failures. The diagnostic analyses may help the reading reduce or recognize his own coupling problems.
