Miki Pulley Ask Coupling Compensates for All Types of Misalignment

Is ideal for challenging food applications

Miki Pulley Ask Stainless Steel Coupling

Miki Pulley stainless-steel Ask couplings feature a unique “sliced” body structure, making them an effective corrosion-resistant solution that can accommodate many types of misalignment. The one-piece Ask coupling design compensates 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.

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 motor to 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, the Ask coupling is 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.

Basic Ask coupling specifications are:

  • Maximum rpm: 11,500
  • Maximum allowable torque: 295 ft-lbs (400 Nm)
  • Bore size range: 0.118 in. to 2.17 in.
  • Backlash: Zero
  • Ambient operating temperature: -40°F to 248°F
