Stainless steel ASK Couplings from Miki Pulley feature a unique “sliced” body structure making them an effective low-cost corrosion-resistant solution that can accommodate many types of misalignment. The stainless steel design makes them ideal for use in food and chemical applications.
One-piece ASK Coupling design is a suitable method for compensating for all types of system misalignment in a shaft-to-shaft connection. The sliced design handles high rotation speeds in high-temperature ranges experienced in food and chemical systems.
The ASK Coupling offers exceptional torsional stiffness and strength. This proven Miki Pulley coupling design assures accurate shaft rotation with precise control. The coupling is available in different materials that dampen conductive heat transfer from the motor to the output shaft. Also important, the coupling provides limited shaft misalignment to alleviate premature system bearing wear.
The coupling’s aerodynamic profile decreases noise while optimizing performance at high speeds. Simple yet reliable, ASK couplings are easily configurable to accommodate a wide range of DBSE (distance between shaft ends). Bores can be arranged with clamp, taper-lock, or keyed styles for specific application requirements. Also important, ASK Couplings are a cost-effective choice for food and chemical applications and are particularly well suited for chemical chlorine applications and small conveying systems used in the foodservice industry.
Basic ASK coupling specifications are:
• Maximum RPM: 11,500
• Maximum allowable torque: 295 ft-lbs (400 Nm)
• Bore size range: 0.118 – 2.17-in. (3.0 mm – 55 mm)
• Backlash: Zero
• Ambient operating temperature: -40 – 120 C (-40 F – 248 F)
