Easily removable gear coupling. Teeth make use of high-frequency hardening and surface uses chromate plating for high longevity. Tooth type uses crowning machining and can be used up to a optimum of 5°. Pilot hole products and shaft hole complete products with keyway and tap available
Gear couplings transmit the highest amount of torque and the best quantity of torque in the smallest diameter of any flexible coupling.
Each coupling consists of two hubs with crowned external equipment teeth. The hubs mesh with two Gear Couplings Inner Hub And Ring Gear internally splined flanged sleeves that are bolted jointly. Gear couplings support angular and axial misalignment by the rocking and sliding of the crowned gear tooth against the mating sleeve teeth. Parallel misalignment is usually accommodated by having two adjacent hub/sleeve flex factors. Gear couplings need periodic lubrication based on the application. They are sensitive to lubrication failures but if properly installed and maintained, these couplings have a service life of three to five 5 years and in some cases they can last for decades.
Gear Couplings’ triple-crowned teeth are crowned on the main, tip and encounter to articulate freely and minimize wear caused by misalignment. By eliminating tip-loading while reducing backlash and radial clearances,HEPT triple-crown teeth can help protect apparatus from damaging loads.
