Chain couplings: small maintenance, more power
Chain couplings are suitable for elastic torque transmitting over a wide speed range. They are effective, effective and robust e. g. concerning higher temperatures and slight angle or parallel displacement.
Furthermore, they are low-maintenance items, they are simple to separate by simply opening the coupling chain, and they provide an excellent price / performance ratio for numerous applications in machine and plant construction. The wide software range is because of the many coupling sizes that can be supplied.
Mounting of the particular coupling sprockets with hardened toothing is carried out inversely on both opposite shaft extensions. However, certain stipulated requirements as to angle deviation and parallel displacement have to be fulfilled. The coupling chain – a measured duplex roller chain regarding to ISO 606 – is normally positioned around the toothing of both sprockets and closed through a connecting link.
Chain couplings are used to transmit power between two shafts. Generally, chain couplings will be installed off the end of a motor or reducer (gearbox) and utilized to connect to a machine for efficient power transmission. A total chain coupling includes two hubs (or sprockets), one coupling chain, which shows up comparable to a coupling China strand of double roller chain and a cover. Not absolutely all applications will utilize a cover, but also for both protection and coupling life they are suggested. Chain couplings are normally utilized in low quickness, high torque applications and invite for 2 degrees misalignment between shafts. Chain couplings are considered an economical method to transmit power between shafts. Please contact Bearing Service to help provide or design in the right coupling for the application.
The Ever-power chain coupling, composed of two-strand roller chains and two sprocket wheels, features simple and compact structure, and high flexibility, power transmission capability and durability.
Also, the chain coupling allows basic connection/disconnection of shafts each other, and the use of the housing enhances protection and durability.
