Coneflex Couplings have a unique concave design principle which provides maximum bearing area and more evenly distributed loads when operating in misaligned conditions. Pressure surfaces of jaws are accurately die cast to form a cone segment. Coupling jaws and inserts maintain their relative position even under misaligned conditions. This allows uniform compression that results in longer life. Oil resistant high grade synthetic rubber inserts have similar pressure surfaces that conform to the die cast jaws. This provides an equalized and cushioned transfer of power. Coupling halves are manufactured from high tensile zinc so rust problems are eliminated. Stocked on many popular bore sizes and application ratings. All Coneflex Coupling Halves are furnished with standard keyways and setscrews. Non standard Bore Sizes and keyways are available upon request. Couplings No. 1, No. 2, & No. 4 are available by quotation.

Double Roller Chain Couplers have a torque capacity which is more than the torque normally transmitted by the shafting that will fit each coupler bore range. Select the smallest coupler size which will accommodate both of your shafts. For reversing operations, shock or pulsating loads, or other severe operation conditions, select the next larger coupler size. All rotating power transmission products are potentially dangerous and must be properly guarded for the speeds and applications for which they are intended. G&G Manufacturing Company Double Roller Chain Coupler Sprockets should not be operated at speeds exceeding 5000 FPM rim speed.

Coupler Hubs are designed to connect two separate shafts. The shafts may be the same or different styles or sizes. Simply choose the WELDAJOINT Bushing® , WELDAHUB® or SH QD Bushing for each shaft needed and assemble with the appropriate Coupler Hub.
