The basic GRID-LIGN coupling consists of two steel shaft hubs, a high strength spring steel tapered grid element, two seals and a cover assembly. Misalignment and end float are accommodated by the sliding action of the grid in the lubricated hub grooves.
Standard GRID-LIGN couplings operate reliably between -22° and +215°F. They can accept angular misalignment to 1/2°, parallel misalignment to.012”, and end float to .375”. Speed capability goes as high as 6000 RPM.
