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 slight angle or parallel displacement.

Furthermore, they are low-maintenance products, 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 building. The wide application range is because of the many coupling sizes which can be supplied.

Mounting of the particular coupling sprockets with hardened toothing is carried out inversely on the two opposite shaft extensions. However, certain stipulated requirements concerning position deviation and parallel displacement have to be met. The coupling chain – a measured duplex roller chain according to ISO 606 – is certainly placed 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 end of a motor or reducer (gearbox) and utilized to hook up to a machine for efficient power transmission. A comprehensive chain coupling consists of two hubs (or sprockets), one coupling chain, which appears related to a 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 recommended. Chain couplings are usually utilized in low velocity, high torque applications and allow for 2 degrees misalignment between shafts. Chain couplings are believed 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.
What’s more, the chain coupling enables simple connection/disconnection of shafts each other, and the use of the housing enhances security and durability.
