Erdöl- und Erdgasindustrie - Elastische Kupplungen für mechanische Kraftübertragung - Allgemeine Anwendungen (ISO 14691:1999)

1.1   Diese Internationale Norm legt die Anforderungen für Kupplungen für die Kraftübertragung zwischen den rotierenden Wellen zweier Maschinen für die allgemeine Anwendung in der Erdöl- und Erdgasindustrie fest. Derartige Anwendungen erfordern üblicherweise Kupplungen, die Kräfte bei Drehzahlen übertragen, die nicht über 4000 U/min hinausgehen, zwischen Maschinen, bei denen die biegekritische Drehzahl erster Ordnung über dem Bereich der Betriebsdrehzahl (stiff-shaft machine) liegt. Es ist zulässig, diese Norm bei Vereinbarung auch außerhalb dieser Grenzen anzuwenden.
1.2   Diese Internationale Norm ist anwendbar für Kupplungen, die konstruiert sind, um Parallelversatz (oder Längsversatz), Winkelabweichung und Axialverschiebung der Wellen auszugleichen, ohne den gekuppelten Maschinen übermäßige mechanische Belastung aufzuzwingen. Die in dieser Norm enthaltenen Kupplungen schließen Zahnradkupplungen (und andere mechanische Eingriffskupplungen), metallische Ausgleichselemente und verschiedene Elastomertypen ein. Spezielle Typen wie lösbare Kupplungen, hydrauliche Kupplungen, Wirbelstromkupplungen, starre Kupplungen, Radialkeilnutkupplungen und Kreuzgelenktypen sind nicht enthalten.
1.3   Diese Internationale Norm behandelt die Konstruktion, die Werkstoffe, die Abnahme und Prüfung der Kupplungen und die Verfahrensweisen der Befestigung der Kupplung auf den Wellen (einschließlich konischer Führungen und andere patentrechtlich geschützte Teile). Diese Internationale Norm legt keine Kriterien für die Auswahl von Kupplungstypen für besondere Anwendungen fest.
1.4   Es wird empfohlen, dass Betreiber, die neue Kupplungen an bereits vorhandene Geräte montieren, die sich von den ursprünglich montierten Teilen unterscheiden, die Hersteller der Antriebsmaschine oder der angetriebenen Maschine konsultieren.
ANMERKUNG 1   In vielen Fällen sind Kupplungen, die in dieser Internationalen Norm behandelt werden, Bestandteil von Herstellerkatalogen.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a world-wide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

International Standard ISO 14691 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 67, Materials, equipment and

offshore structures for the petroleum and natural gas industries, Subcommittee SC 6, Processing equipment and

systems.

Introduction

This International Standard is based on the accumulated knowledge and experience of manufacturers and users of

power transmission couplings in the petroleum and natural gas industries, but its use is not restricted to these

industries.

Users of this International Standard should be aware that further or differing requirements may be needed for

individual applications. This International Standard is not intended to inhibit a vendor from offering, or the purchaser

from accepting, alternative equipment or engineering solutions for the individual application. This may be particularly

appropriate where there is innovative or developing technology. Where an alternative is offered, the vendor should

identify any variations from this International Standard and provide details.

This International Standard requires the purchaser to specify certain details and features.

A bullet (l) at the beginning of a clause, subclause or paragraph indicates that either a decision is required or

further information is to be provided by the purchaser. This information or decision should be indicated on the data

sheets; otherwise it should be stated in the quotation request (enquiry) or in the order.

Petroleum and natural gas industries — Flexible couplings
for mechanical power transmission — General purpose
applications
1 Scope

1.1 This International Standard specifies the requirements for couplings for the transmission of power between the

rotating shafts of two machines for general purpose applications in the petroleum and natural gas industries. Such

applications typically require couplings to transmit power at speeds not exceeding 4 000 r/min, between machines in

which the first lateral critical speed is above the running speed range (stiff-shaft machines). It may, by agreement,

be used for applications outside these limits.

This International Standard is applicable to couplings designed to accommodate parallel (or lateral) offset,

1.2

angular misalignment and axial displacement of the shafts without imposing excessive mechanical loading on the

coupled machines. Couplings covered include gear (and other mechanical contact types), metallic flexible-element

and various elastomeric types. Special types such as clutch, hydraulic, eddy-current, rigid, radial spline and

universal joint types, are not covered.

1.3 This International Standard covers design, materials of construction, inspection and testing of couplings and

methods of attachment of the coupling to the shafts (including tapered sleeve and other proprietary devices). This

International Standard does not define criteria for the selection of coupling types for specific applications.

1.4 It is recommended that, when users fit new couplings to existing equipment which are different from those

originally fitted, they consult the manufacturers of the driving or driven equipment.

NOTE 1 In many cases, couplings covered by this International Standard are manufacturer’s catalogue items.

NOTE 2 For the following applications, the use of ISO 10441 is recommended :

 large or high-speed machines that may be required to operate continuously for extended periods, are often unspared and

are critical to the continued operation of the installation (special purpose applications);

 machines in which the first lateral critical speed is less than the maximum required operating speed (flexible-shaft

machines);

 machines where the rotor dynamics are particularly sensitive to coupling unbalance.

2 Normative references

The following normative documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of

this International Standard. For dated references, subsequent amendments to, or revisions of, any of these

publications do not apply. However, parties to agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to

investigate the possibility of applying the most recent editions of the normative documents indicated below. For

undated references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies. Members of ISO and IEC

maintain registers of currently valid international standards.

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this International Standard, the following terms and definitions apply.

3.1 Definitions of coupling types
3.1.1
mechanical contact coupling

coupling designed to transmit torque by direct mechanical contact between mating parts and accommodate

misalignment and axial displacement by relative rocking and sliding motion between the parts in contact

NOTE 1 The contacting parts may be metallic or may be made of self-lubricating non-metallic material.

NOTE 2 This category includes gear couplings (see 3.1.1.1).
3.1.1.1
gear coupling

coupling designed to transmit torque and accommodate angular misalignment, parallel offset and axial displacement

by relative rocking and sliding motion between mating profiled gears
3.1.2
metallic flexible-element coupling

coupling that obtains its flexibility from the flexing of thin metallic discs, diaphragms or links

NOTE This category includes the two types given in 3.1.2.1 and 3.1.2.2.
3.1.2.1
metallic diaphragm coupling

coupling consisting of one or more metallic flexible elements in the form of thin circular plates that are attached to

one part of the coupling at their outer diameter and the other part at their inner diameter

3.1.2.2
metallic disc coupling

coupling consisting of one or more metallic flexible elements that are alternately attached to the two parts of the

coupling, the attachment points being essentially the same distance from the centreline

3.1.3
elastomeric flexible-element coupling

a coupling in which the torque is transmitted through one or several elastomeric elements

NOTE This category includes elastomeric shear (3.1.3.1) and elastomeric compression (3.1.3.2) couplings.

3.1.3.1
elastomeric shear coupling

coupling in which the torque is transmitted through an elastomeric element which is principally loaded in shear

NOTE The element may be in the form of a tyre, a bellows (with one or more convolutions) or a diaphragm. A single such

elastomeric element is usually able to accommodate angular misalignment, parallel offset and axial displacement.

---------------------- Page: 12 ----------------------
SIST EN ISO 14691:2001
ISO
ISO 14691:1999(E)
3.1.3.2
elastomeric compression coupling

coupling in which elastomeric inserts, often in the form of bushes or wedges or one single insert, are located

between adjacent parts of the driving and driven halves of the coupling and are principally loaded in compression

NOTE The ability of such couplings to accommodate misalignment, particularly of the parallel offset type, is limited.

3.1.4
double-engagement coupling
coupling with two planes of flexure

NOTE This arrangement enables couplings of certain types, notably gear and metallic flexible-element types, which cannot

normally accommodate parallel (or lateral) offset, to do so.
3.1.5
single-engagement coupling
coupling with only one plane of flexure

NOTE Single-engagement couplings of some types, notably gear and metallic flexible-element types, will not normally

accommodate parallel (or lateral) offset misalignment.
3.2 Terms relating to coupling rating
3.2.1
coupling axial reaction force

axial force developed within the coupling resulting from the imposed operating conditions

NOTE 1 Examples of imposed operating conditions are axial deflection, misalignment, speed, temperature, etc.

NOTE 2 The force is a function of the shape and stiffness of the flexible-elements or the sliding friction between the elements

of a mechanical contact coupling.
3.2.2
coupling continuous rated torque

coupling manufacturer's declared maximum torque that the coupling will transmit continuously for not less than

25 000 h

NOTE 1 It is expressed either as a single value at the coupling rated speed, when simultaneously subjected to the coupling

rated maximum continuous misalignment (both angular misalignment and parallel or lateral offset) and the coupling rated

maximum continuous axial displacement, or as an interrelated function of speed, misalignment and axial displacement.

NOTE 2 For certain types of coupling, particularly those with elastomeric elements or inserts, the coupling continuous rated

torque may also be a function of the operating temperature.
3.2.3
coupling rated maximum continuous misalignment

maximum misalignment (both angular misalignment and parallel or lateral offset) the coupling is able to tolerate

continuously for not less than 25 000 h at the coupling rated speed, when transmitting the coupling continuous rated

torque and simultaneously subjected to the coupling rated maximum continuous axial displacement

3.2.4
coupling rated maximum continuous axial displacement

maximum axial displacement the coupling is able to tolerate continuously for not less than 25 000 h at the coupling

rated speed, when transmitting the coupling continuous rated torque and simultaneously subjected to the coupling

rated maximum continuous misalignment
3.2.5
coupling rated speed

maximum speed at which the coupling is capable of continuously transmitting the coupling continuous rated torque

when simultaneously subjected to the coupling rated maximum continuous misalignment and the coupling rated

maximum continuous axial displacement

maximum allowable speed

highest rotational speed at which the coupling design will permit transient operation

3.3 Terms relating to coupling duty
3.3.1
application factor

factor by which the machine rated torque is increased to allow for the fact that the torque required to be transmitted

with certain types of driving or driven machines is not constant but varies in a cyclic manner

NOTE Examples of application are with reciprocating engines or compressors.
3.3.2
confidence factor

factor by which the machine rated torque is increased to allow for uncertainties in the determination of the machine

rated torque and possible future changes to the application
3.3.3
machine rated torque
maximum mean torque required to be transmitted continuously by the coupling

NOTE Mean torque is the short-time average torque and does not include cyclic variations such as those associated with

reciprocating machines.
3.3.4
machine rated speed

highest rotational speed at which the machine rated torque is required to be transmitted continuously by the

coupling
3.3.5
maximum continuous speed

maximum rotational speed at which the coupling is required to operate continuously but not necessarily transmitting

the machine rated torque

NOTE In most cases, the machine rated speed and the maximum continuous speed are the same. In some applications,

however, the coupling may be required to operate at speeds above the speed at which it is required to transmit its rated torque.

3.3.6
trip speed

rotational speed of the coupling corresponding to the speed at which the independent emergency overspeed device

operates to shut down a variable-speed prime mover

NOTE Where the term is used in relation to a machine train driven by a constant-speed, alternating-current electric motor,

the trip speed is assumed to be the coupling speed corresponding to the motor synchronous speed at the maximum supply

frequency.
3.4 General terms
3.4.1
angular misalignment

minor angle between the centrelines of two shafts that intersect at a point or, where the shafts do not intersect, the

minor angle between the centreline of one shaft and an intersecting line parallel to the centreline of the other shaft

See Figure C.2.

NOTE With double-engagement couplings, the term also applies to the minor angle between the centreline of one shaft

and the effective centreline of the floating shaft (3.4.6).

NOTE The purchaser may be the end user or the end user’s agent or the vendor of the driving or driven machine.

3.4.16
potential unbalance
maximum probable net unbalance of a complete coupling after installation

NOTE 1 Potential unbalance results from a combination of the residual unbalance of individual components and

subassemblies and possible eccentricity of the components and subassemblies due to run-out and tolerances of the various

locating surfaces and registers.

NOTE 2 The numerical value of the potential unbalance is the square root of the sum of the squares of all the contributory

unbalances. Typical contributory unbalances are:
 the measured residual unbalance of each component or subassembly;

 errors in the balance of each component or subassembly resulting from eccentricity in the fixture used to mount the

component or subassembly in the balancing machine;

 the unbalance of each component or subassembly due to eccentricity resulting from clearance or run-out of the relevant

registers or fits.

NOTE 3 The concept of potential unbalance is explained more fully and a worked example is given in annex B.

3.4.17
residual unbalance

spacer gap length

axial length of the free gap, after the removal of the spacer assembly, that is available for the use of tools to remove

the hubs or for other purposes

NOTE The spacer gap length may be less than the distance between the shaft ends.

3.4.21

torque required to produce unit angular displacement between the coupled shafts

NOTE Couplings with elastomeric flexible-elements may exhibit a dynamic torsional stiffness which is significantly different

from the static value.
3.4.22
unit responsibility

responsibility for coordinating the technical aspects of the complete machine train and the associated auxiliary

systems

NOTE 1 The technical aspects to be considered include, but are not limited to, such factors as the power requirements,

speed, rotation, general arrangement, couplings and coupling guards, dynamics, noise, lubrication, sealing system,

instrumentation, piping, conformance to specifications and testing of components.

NOTE 2 Unit responsibility normally resides with the vendor of the driven machine.

3.4.23
vendor
body that supplies the coupling in reponse to an order from the purchaser

NOTE The vendor may be the manufacturer of the coupling or the manufacturer’s agent and is normally responsible for
