If your facility uses pumps and motors, they are joined using couplings to transfer torque. With shafts
rotating at high speeds of up to 350-400 rpm, touching the rotating couplings can cause serious injuries. This is why coupling guards are used. Coupling guards are important pieces of equipment designed in line with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to protect people from harm when using pumps
.Some of the common coupling guards include the Guard-Barrel type that is designed using metal. The metallic models are coated to prevent corrosion. You can also go for the guard-barrel designed with non-metallic materials. In the case of the non-metallic model, there is no risk of corrosion. Others include the guard-box design (metallic and non-metallic) and guard stuffing box.
