Chain couplings

How to choose this product

A chain coupling is a flexible, non-twisting coupling consisting of a double-wide chain linking two steel or nylon sprockets. It transmits torque between two imperfectly aligned shafts without twisting or loss of rotational speed.


Chain couplings are used wherever torque must be transmitted between two imperfectly aligned shafts at constant velocity and without torsion.


The chain linking the two sprockets can be of steel or nylon. The former requires lubrication.

How to choose

Choice will depend on:
- Torque and speed to be transmitted
- Shaft misalignment
- Load type: requiring torque fluctuation compensation (flexible elastic coupling) or perfectly synchronized (flexible, no-twist coupling)
- Size, available space, noise, disassembly
- Environment, temperature and other external factors


- Low cost
- Simple
- Rapid disassembly


- Play in chain
