Issues to be resolved Resolve misalignment issues Design of new coupler to handle high speeds Design a new electric motor to handle the power required by compressor
Problems with Rimitec Coupler Servo-insert coupling allowed a restricted amount of misalignment Elastic material in the middle began to plastically deform Stainless steel retaining ring was slip fit Coupler more rigid and prevented it from handling any misalignment Disc couplings style –WM Berg Coupler

Design of the Helical Coupler 1)Why use a flexible shaft coupling ? 2) Helical Flexure 3) Multiple Starts 4) Flexure Creation Process 5) Material Martensitic stainless steel CC455 H900 per AMS 5617 Wire EDM, Dynamically balanced while in production Best for high speed application Double Start, Ansys Analysis Heli-cal Inc. Rigid couplings would have been always used if it were possible to perfectly align these shafts

Alignment Issues and translational stages 1)Straight Edge 2)Laser Alignment Systems - Laser systems 3) Dial indicator methods are A)RIM FACE METHOD B)REVERSE RIM METHOD
Reverse Rim Alignment Method SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM OF COMPRESSOR – MOTOR SYSTEM FOR REVERSE RIM ALIGNMENT METHOD M = the offset in the plane of the movable indicator. S = the offset in the plane of the stationary indicator. A = the distance between the stationary and movable dial indicator plungers. B = the distance from the movable dial indicator plunger to the movable machine’s front feet bolt center. C= the distance between the movable machines’ front and rear feet bolt centers.
Shear Stress Analysis Maximum Shear Stress Theory Power being transmitted = P = 2000 W Speed of rotation of the shaft = N = 200000 rpm Angular velocity of rotation = ω = 2* π *N/60 Torque developed = T = P/ ω = 0.095 N.m Maximum allowable shear stress = τ max Factor of Safety = F = 3 a = ASME factor for shaft design for shear = ¾ No vertical shear stress Rigidity modulus of the shaft m/l = γ = 117 GPa Angle of shaft twist because of torsion = α (maximum for the outer layer) For a τmax value of 20305 psi (for a Titanium), d = 15.846 mm Thickness of the hollow shaft = t = [D – d]/2 = 0.077 mm << 0.5 mm So, the shaft would not fail under pure shear. Also, Angle of Twist
Bending Stress The values considered for the bending stress are as follows, Elastic modulus of shaft = 116,000 MPa Poisson’s ratio for shaft = υ = 0.34 Ultimate tensile strength of the shaft = 220 MPa Elastic modulus of permanent magnet = 150,000 MPa Poisson’s ratio for permanent magnet(ν) = 0.3 Ultimate tensile strength of the permanent magnet = 82.7 MPa Bending moment due to impeller weight = M = 3.74 N-mm Shaft cross-section – Hollow Shaft Permanent magnet cross-section – Solid Shaft Density of the shaft m/l (ρshaft) = 4500 kg/m3 Density of the permanent magnet (ρmagnet) = 7500 kg/m3 Maximum bending stress (σmax) = M/Z, where Z = section modulus. σmax,Titanium = 0.037 MPa << Ultimate tensile strength of shaft. σmax, Permanent Magnet = 0.048 MPa << Ultimate tensile strength of permanent magnet. So the shaft would not fail under pure bending.
Fracture Toughness Fracture Toughness is an issue at cryogenic temperatures. It is defined k = cs(√ π*c)α, where ‘k’ is the ‘Critical Stress Intensity’, Cs – Critical Stress, c – crack length, α – geometry factor (depends on the cross-section of the member) ‘k’ depends on the Bending Stress developed.
Centrifugal Stress Analysis Centrifugal stress developed in shaft at 200K rpm = 728 MPa. Centrifugal stress developed in magnet at 200K rpm = 261.2 MPa
Thermal Analysis Thermal stress developed in the shaft at 77 K = 329 MPa Thermal stress developed in the magnet at 77 K = 130 MPa Stress due to centrifugal force in shaft rotating at 200,000 rpm = 728 MPa Stress due to centrifugal force in magnet rotating at 200,000 rpm = 251.2 MPa Thermal stress developed in shaft due to operating at 77 K = 329 MPa The Total Stress = 1308.2 MPa < Titanium Grade Yield Strength 1420 MPa So the titanium shaft would not fail. Also, Thermal Stress developed in magnet = 130 MPa < Compressive Strength = 833 MPa. So, the magnet would not crack or crumble to powder.
