Lovejoy / Sier-Bath Gear Type Couplings

The FARR Coupling is used when a rigid connection is required between the low speed shaft of a gearbox and the head shaft of a conveyor, bucket elevator, mixer or any overhung or suspended load. Components of a FARR Coupling consist of male and female piloted hubs made from 4140 alloy steel. The hubs are extended to assure 80% hub to shaft contact. Keeper plates are included for safety. The two hubs are assembled with Grade 8 bolts and Grade “C” Prevailing Torque nuts. Standard coupling sizes have a nominal torque range from 11,300 to 5,736,000 in-lbs. Larger sizes are available depending on the application. >> Learn more...
