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