Jaw in-shear couplings

Jaw in-shear couplings
Most elastomeric couplings take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours to remove and replace the spider or insert. Lovejoy’s JIS 6 Pin takes five to fifteen minutes and it’s as easy as this: twist off the retaining ring; peel back the insert, take the insert out of the coupling, install a new insert, and put the retaining ring back on. That’s it –no tools.

And the real advantage is that the JIS 6 pin uses a standard Lovejoy Jaw hub, one that most companies already have on their shelves. When Lovejoy says there is little downtime, they aren’t just talking about changing the insert, they are also talking about waiting for parts.

The JIS 6 Pin will disconnect the two pieces of equipment upon failure because there is no metal-to-metal contact. Parts are resistant to oil, dirt, sand, moisture, and grease. With customized bore sizing always available, Lovejoy’s jaw couplings are available in more than 850,000 combinations of bore sizes.
