Baldor Electric Company introduces the new Dodge Disc coupling, a solution for pumping applications in the oil and gas industry. The product meets the American Petroleum Institute (API) 610 specification and offers users a maintenance-free, high torque, precision balanced design. Dodge Disc couplings offer improved reliability by utilizing the newest generation of disc geometry, which minimizes disc stress during operation and results in high misalignment capabilities and torque ratings. The Dodge Disc coupling design can increase productivity by reducing maintenance requirements. Some oil and gas pumping applications still use metallic couplings that require periodic lubrication. However, since Dodge Disc couplings do not have relative movement between mating surfaces, there is no need for grease during operation. This new coupling allows users to lower costs by offering a large hub option that increases the max bore capability in applications where the coupling size is driven by the shaft diameter instead of the torque requirement. The new Dodge Disc coupling improves reliability, increases productivity and reduces total cost.
