Chain couplings: little maintenance, more power
Chain couplings are suitable for elastic torque transmission over a wide acceleration range. They are powerful, effective and robust e. g. as to higher temperatures and minor position or parallel displacement.
Furthermore, they are low-maintenance products, they are simple to separate by merely opening the coupling chain, and they offer an excellent cost / performance ratio for numerous applications in machine and plant construction. The wide program range is because of the many coupling sizes that can be supplied.
Mounting of the particular coupling sprockets with hardened toothing is completed inversely on both opposite shaft extensions. However, certain stipulated requirements concerning position deviation and parallel displacement need to be met. The coupling chain – a measured duplex roller chain regarding to ISO 606 – is definitely positioned around the toothing of the two sprockets and closed through a connecting link.
Chain couplings are utilized to transmit power between two shafts. Generally, chain couplings will be installed off the finish of a electric motor or reducer (gearbox) and useful to hook up to a machine for effective power transmission. A comprehensive chain coupling consists of two hubs (or sprockets), one coupling chain, which appears comparable to a strand of double roller chain and a cover. Not absolutely all applications will make use of a cover, but also for both security and coupling life they are recommended. Chain couplings are normally utilized in low speed, high torque applications and allow for 2 degrees misalignment between shafts. Chain couplings are considered an economical method to transmit power between shafts. Please get in touch with Bearing Service to help provide or style in the proper coupling for your application.
The Ever-power chain coupling, made up of two-strand roller chains and two sprocket wheels, features simple and compact structure, and high flexibility, power transmission capability and durability.
What’s more, the chain coupling enables basic connection/disconnection of shafts one another, and the use of the housing enhances safety and durability.
