Chain couplings: little maintenance, more power
Chain couplings are ideal for elastic torque transmission over a wide swiftness range. They are effective, effective and robust e. g. concerning higher temperatures and small angle or parallel displacement.

Furthermore, they are low-maintenance products, they are easy to separate by simply opening the coupling chain, and they provide an excellent cost / performance ratio for numerous applications in machine and plant building. The wide application range is because of the many coupling sizes which can be supplied.

Mounting of the special 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 need to be met. The coupling chain – a measured duplex roller chain regarding to ISO 606 – is normally 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 utilized to hook up to a machine for effective power transmission. A full chain coupling consists of two hubs (or sprockets), one coupling chain, which appears identical to a strand of double roller chain and a cover. Not all applications will utilize a cover, but also for both security and coupling lifestyle 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 considered an economical way to transmit power between shafts. Please contact Bearing Service to greatly 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.
Also, the chain coupling allows simple connection/disconnection of shafts each other, and the use of the housing enhances security and durability.
