Installation and Lubricants Instructions 200 Series

Installation
Disassemble coupling and clean all parts. Follow the appropriate 6 steps and you are ready to go! Installed and lubricated in accordance with the instructions, your Amerigear 200 Series coupling is prepared for a life of dependable, trouble-free service.

Series F Installation
Step 1. Lightly coat grease on “O” rings and insert “O” rings into grooves of sleeve (into grooves of seal retainer for sizes 208 and larger). Place sleeves for sizes 200-207 over shaft ends. For sizes 208 and larger, place only the seal retainers with “O” rings inserted, on shaft. Care should be taken not to damage seal on shaft key seat.

Step 2.
Check key fits and coat keys and keyways with oil resistance sealing compound (Permatex No. 2) to prevent leakage. Install size 201 to 207 hubs on shafts with long ends flush with shaft ends. Install size 200 hub on shaft with short ends flush with the shaft ends. For shrink fits, apply heat to hubs uniformly, preferably submerged in oil not exceeding 350°F. Do not allow “O” ring seals to contact heated hubs.

CAUTION: Care must be taken to avoid personal injury in the heating and handling of coupling hubs that are shrink fit shaft mounted.

For sizes 208 and larger, place retainer gaskets and sleeves over hubs and onto shafts.

Step 3.
Align shafts allowing clearance as per tabulation or in accordance with Dimension “D” from engineering data. Check gap with taper or feeler gauge at 90° points and align hubs with straightedge at 90° points.

Step 4. After thoroughly coating hub and sleeve teeth with lubricant, slip sleeves onto hubs, carefully engaging teeth (do not damage seal surface). Place sleeve gasket between sleeves and align bolt holes.

Step 5. Secure sleeves, using care to tighten fasteners uniformly. See tabulation “Flange Bolt Tightening Torque”. For sizes 208 and larger, bolt seal retainers to sleeves.

Step 6. Remove both Dryseal lube plugs and add grease in the amount given in the Lubricant Quantity Table. Install lube plugs using Permatex No. 2 for sealing and seat securely.

Series C Installation
Step 1. For sizes 200=207 place retainer ring, seal retainer with “O” ring on each shaft. For sizes 208 and larger, place seal retainer with “O” ring inserted, and gasket over shaft. For CS Series, place retainer ring on shaft on which CS rigid hub will be mounted.

Step 2. Check key fits and coat keys and keyways with oil resistant compound to prevent leakage. Install hubs on shafts with short ends flush with shaft ends. For shrink fits, apply heat to hub uniformly, preferably submerged in oil not exceeding 350°F Do not allow “O” rings contact heated hubs.

CAUTION: Care must be taken to avoid personal injury in the heating and handling of coupling hubs that are shrink fit shaft mounted.

Step 3. Slip sleeve over hub mounted on longest shaft.

Step 4. Align shafts allowing clearance as per tabulation or from Engineering Data, Dimension “D”. Check Gap with taper or feeler gauge at 90° intervals. Also align hubs with straightedge at 90° points.

Step 5. Pack hub and sleeve teeth with grease. Force grease into shaft gap. Lightly coat grease on “O” rings. Slide sleeve over hubs to center position. Remove Dryseal lube plugs and add grease in the amount given in the Lubricant Quantity Table.

Step 6. For sizes 200-207, install sleeve “O” rings in sleeve counterbores – then press seal retainer assembly in place. Use fingertips or blunt tool. Seat retaining rings in grooves using a winding motion. Recheck to assure retaining rings are positively seated. For sizes 208 and larger, bolt seal end plates to sleeves.
