Used in applications where high power and torque have to be transmitted in machinery with shock and vibration loads where shaft misalignment is evident.
Taper grid couplings come in two basic styles:- Horizontal split or Vertical split (which have a slightly higher speed capability and are easier to fit in space restricted areas)
The taper grid, the wear part of the coupling, accomodates misalignment in 3 planes and acts as a damper, reducing transmitted vibration by up to 30%. It can also act as an overload device.
The grid is quickly replaced if required and as the 2 hubs require no resetting, realignment is unnecessary and downtime is minimised.
Always transmits 100% of the power with little noise
