When a vertical pump has a thrust bearing, the coupling between the motor and pump likely needs to provide for misalignment capability. In these situations, CouplingCorp can use its Flexible Shaft Couplings to meet the need.
Depending on the size and weight of the coupling, there might have to be provisions included to hold the weight of the spacer sleeve so that the flexible elements are not damaged. Consult CCA for specific applications.
