Chain couplings: little maintenance, more power
Chain couplings are suitable for elastic torque transmitting over a wide velocity range. They are powerful, effective and robust e. g. concerning higher temperatures and minor position or parallel displacement.
Furthermore, they are low-maintenance items, they are simple to separate by merely opening the coupling chain, and they provide an excellent cost / performance ratio for numerous applications in machine and plant construction. The wide application range is due to the many coupling sizes which can be supplied.
Mounting of the particular coupling sprockets with hardened toothing is completed inversely on both opposite shaft extensions. Nevertheless, certain stipulated requirements as to position deviation and parallel displacement need to be fulfilled. The coupling chain – a measured duplex roller chain regarding to ISO 606 – is certainly positioned around the toothing of the two sprockets and closed by means of a connecting link.
Chain couplings are used to transmit power between two shafts. Generally, chain couplings will be installed off the finish of a motor or reducer (gearbox) and utilized to hook up to a machine for efficient power transmission. A total chain coupling contains two hubs (or sprockets), one coupling chain, which appears related to a strand of dual roller chain and a cover. Not absolutely all applications will utilize a cover, but also for both safety and coupling life they are suggested. Chain couplings are usually utilized in low quickness, high torque applications and invite for 2 degrees misalignment between shafts. Chain couplings are believed an economical way to transmit power between shafts. Please get in touch with Bearing Service to help provide or style 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.
What’s more, the chain coupling enables basic connection/disconnection of shafts each other, and the utilization of the housing enhances security and durability.
