The Jaw Type couplings from Lovejoy are offered in the industry’s largest variety of stock bore/keyway combinations. These couplings require no lubrication and provide highly reliable service for light, medium, and heavy duty electrical motor and internal combustion power transmission applications.
Applications include power transmission to industrial equipment such as pumps, gear boxes, compressors, blowers, mixers, and conveyors. Lovejoy’s Jaw Type couplings are available in 24 sizes from a minimum torque rating of 3.5 in–lbs (0.4 Nm) to a maximum torque rating of 170,004 in–lbs (19209 Nm) and a bore range of .125 inches (4.45mm) to 7 inches (178mm). Lovejoy’s standard bore program covers AGMA, SAE, and DIN bore/keyway and spline bore combinations.
Lovejoy Jaw Type couplings generally consist of two hubs (available in sintered metal, aluminum, bronze, steel, stainless steel, and ductile iron), and an elastomer element, known as a spider or cushion (materials available include NBR SOX rubber, Urethane, Hytrel®, and Bronze).
