The primary function of a coupling is to connect two shafts that turn in the same direction and on the same centreline.

Selecting a coupling will depend on a number of important factors depending on operating conditions. Factors which should be considered include:

  • Horsepower
  • Torque
  • Angular misalignment
  • Offset misalignment
  • Type of driven equipment
  • Rotational speed
  • Shaft size
  • Space
  • Environment
