Low-cost spacer coupling guards

FALK, represented by CBC Power Transmission , has released Orange Peel PCG pump coupling guards for ANS and ISO pump connections. They offer convenience, a low initial cost, safety compliance, simplified installation and reduced maintenance. The guards are suitable for pumps, fans, blowers, and gear drives.

PCG Guards are simply trimmed to length and attached to the foundation with four fasteners. A pump side end cap is supplied to enclose the extension opening, which can be fitted around the pump seal cage when required. Powder-coated metal leg kits are sized to accommodate the range of base to centerline requirements. Four lengths are available.

The guards have symmetrical halves injection moulded from maintenance-free polyethylene and joined by a hinge assembly at the top. One size accommodates most ANSI and ISO pump configurations and they are available from stock in ANSI Safety Orange and ISO Safety Yellow for indoor or outdoor use.

Falk can offer standard Orange Peel guards to complement its complete coupling line, giving customers a standard shaft connection solution. Orange Peel guards are also used on Falk drive systems to offer improved maintenance convenience and availability.

Orange Peel rotating shaft guards are suitable for new applications and to retrofit existing installations. Safety labels are available for use on existing guards.
