Lovejoy is pleased to be able to provide quality grid couplings covering a
large number of industry standard sizes and lengths. The Lovejoy grid style
coupling has proven itself in performance and popularity over a wide range
Lovejoy’s grid style coupling design has demonstrated its ability to dampen
vibration by as much as 30% and can cushion shock loads that could cause
damage to both the driving and driven equipment. The tapered grid spring
design absorbs impact energy by spreading the energy out over the full
length of the grid spring thus reducing the magnitude of the torque spikes.
The Lovejoy design uses a curved hub tooth profile which creates a
progressive contact with the flexible grid spring as the application torque
increases. This feature provides a more effective and efficient transmission
of power in properly aligned couplings.
Lovejoy’s versatile design of industry standard hubs and grid springs
for both horizontal and vertical cover styles allow Lovejoy couplings
to be interchangeable with other industry standard grid couplings and
Proper grid coupling installation and maintenance can add to a longer
coupling life. Grid spring replacement is simple and can be performed at a
fraction of the cost and time of a complete coupling.
The Lovejoy Grid Spacer coupling is an ideal coupling for applications where there is a
requirement for some vibration dampening in installations that are not close coupled. This
means some amount of gap, or BSE exists between the driver and driven equipment shafts.
All Lovejoy Grid Spacer Couplings are supplied with Horizontal Split Covers. The split cover
design allows for quick access to the grid spring for ease of maintenance or grid spring
replacement. The Horizontal Split Cover is also ideal for applications where there may be
some constraints on the diameter of the coupling.
