Downers Grove, IL
For Immediate Release
Lovejoy Inc. achieves ATEX
Certification for the Disc Coupling Product Family
Downers Grove, IL, April 23, 2015—Lovejoy Inc., a global
leader in couplings, power transmission, hydraulic components, and rubber
suspension technology, today announced that its Disc Coupling Product Line,
which includes SU, SX, SXC, SXCS, SXCST, DI, DIR, DILR, DIRA and DIRLA types, has
achieved ATEX certification.
Lovejoy Inc. takes great pride in being able to offer a wide
variety of superior disc coupling products in models designed to meet the
application needs of today’s worldwide power transmission market.
Using advanced design techniques, implementation of Finite Element Analysis,
and extensive testing of materials, Lovejoy has developed an innovative disc
pack profile design revolutionary to traditional disc pack designs found in the
market. This disc pack can accommodate 1/2° to 1-1/2° of angular misalignment,
and is used in all Lovejoy disc coupling products.
Lovejoy disc packs are manufactured using high-grade stainless steel
(AISI-301), ensuring high strength, high endurance to fatigue, and resistance
to most environmental conditions.
Lovejoy disc couplings utilize unitized disc packs with 4, 6 or 8 bolt designs.
While the 8 bolt design can transmit greater torque than the 6 or 4 bolt
design, it is not able to accommodate as much angular misalignment.
