Roller chain coupling brief introduction:
It is composed of two half couplings and connected by sprocket meshing through a common roller chain. General roller chain couplings are: GL roller chain couplings, KC sprocket (chain) couplings, nylon chain couplings,silent chain couplings and so on.
The difference between roller chain couplings is whether there is a cover on the outside. If have ,while it is beautiful,also play a role in protecting the safety of workers. When the chain breaks down accidentally, it can play a certain cushioning effect, thereby reducing injuries.
Its low cost, low requirements for installation accuracy,and certain ability of relative displacement compensation.Which makes it convenient assembly and installation, light weight and reliable work.
And the roller chain coupling has a simple structure, consisting of only four parts: two shafts, a chain, and a casing. For general sprockets, the size of the chain is 4 points, 5 points, 6 points, 8 points, 1 inch, 1 inch and a half, 1 inch 6, 2 inches, 2 inches and a half, and 3 inches.
Roller chain couplings can be applied to the shafting transmission of agricultural machinery, mining, chemical, engineering, textile, light industry, lifting and transportation machinery. No matter the environment is humid, dusty, or high temperature.
Here are the disadvantages
1must need a protective cover
2 Very good lubrication conditions.If it is not well lubricated, will easy to break, which will cause the machine to stop working and become dangerous. Therefore, it is better to equip with a protective cover. Of course, it can be omitted if the speed is not high.
