API 610 Couplings
« Back to Glossary
Coupling DesignThe standard states, couplings are designed to accommodate misalignment and axial displacement of the shafts with imposing excessive mechanical loading on the coupled equipment. Couplings covered in this standard include: gear, flexible element, quill shaft and selected types for torsional damping and torsional tuning in horizontal applications.
Other CouplingsAll other couplings, including clutch, hydraulic and general purpose couplings are excluded from the scope of this standard. API 610 couplings standard covers, design, materials of construction, manufacturing quality, inspection and testing of special purpose couplings. The API 610 couplings standard does not define criteria for the selection of coupling types for specific applications.
