Flexible Chain Couplings

Flexible Roller Chain Couplings are composed of a double strand roller chain and two sprockets. Roller chain couplings have a
torque capacity in excess of the torque normally transmitted by shafting which falls within the coupling bore range. Select the
smallest coupling which will accommodate both shafts. For a reversing operation, shock or pulsating loads, or other severe
operating conditions, select the next larger coupling size.

A cover should be used to assure maximum service life, particularly if the coupling operates at high speeds or under moist or
abrasive conditions. For proper lubrication, fill the space between the cover and the coupling with soft to medium consistency
bearing grease.

Flexible Chain Couplings

Coupling Covers
The coupling cover protects the lubricant and in so doing
extends the wear life of the flexible chain coupling.
