Chain Couplings

Chain Couplings

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 connect to a machine for efficient power transmission. A complete chain coupling consists of two hubs (or sprockets), one coupling chain, which appears similar to a strand of double roller chain and a cover. Not all applications will utilize a cover, however for both safety and coupling life they are recommended. Chain couplings are normally utilized in low speed, high torque applications and allow for 2 degrees misalignment between shafts. Chain couplings are considered an economical way to transmit power between shafts. Please contact Bearing Service to help provide or design in the right coupling for your application.
