Chain couplings: little maintenance, more power
Chain couplings are suitable for elastic torque transmitting over a wide acceleration range. They are effective, effective and robust e. g. as to higher temperatures and small angle or parallel displacement.

Furthermore, they are low-maintenance products, they are easy to separate by merely opening the coupling chain, and they provide an excellent cost / performance ratio for numerous applications in machine and plant structure. The wide program range is due to the numerous coupling sizes which 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 angle deviation and parallel displacement have to be met. The coupling chain – a measured duplex roller chain according to ISO 606 – is usually placed around the toothing of both sprockets and closed by means of a connecting link.

Chain couplings are utilized to transmit power between two shafts. Generally, chain couplings will be set up off the end of a engine or reducer (gearbox) and useful to connect to a machine for efficient power transmission. A comprehensive chain coupling contains two hubs (or sprockets), one coupling chain, which shows up similar to a strand of dual roller chain and a cover. Not absolutely all applications will utilize a cover, however for both basic safety and coupling lifestyle they are recommended. 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 method to transmit power between shafts. Please contact Bearing Service to help provide or design 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.
Also, the chain coupling allows basic connection/disconnection of shafts one another, and the utilization of the housing enhances protection and durability.
