Cross+Morse has expanded its comprehensive family of quality industrial couplings to include the Type ‘C’ Jaw, offering a uniquely simple design combined with misalignment capability and maximum economy. The ‘L’ coupling contains only three components: two jaws and one ‘spider’ insert. Power is transmitted between the jaw halves by the insert, which is offered in a choice of four materials to suit all the application characteristics and horsepower requirements. All sizes are dimensionally interchangeable with industry standards, making replacement in existing installations easy and economical. Type ‘L’ Jaw Couplings are designed for light to medium duty applications up to 112 Kw at 1500 rpm, and are available for shaft sizes from 1/8” (3.2mm) to 60mm.
‘L’ Series Couplings offer a choice of 4 insert types for maximum versatility
Type ‘L’ Jaw Couplings are designed for applications in the light-to-medium duty range, with capacities and performance characteristics depending on the type of insert used. For maximum versatility in selection, Cross+Morse offers four different insert materials to suit the application.
Buna-N: This is the standard flexible insert material in Type ‘L’ Jaw Couplings, serving the majority of applications. The materials is an oil resistant rubber compound with excellent flexibility and shock absorption; temperature range is –40°C to +100°C.
Urethane: The urethane insert offers approximately 50% greater torque capacity than standard Buna-N, and in addition provides good chemical resistance. Temperature is –35°C to 70°C.
