The Lovejoy Saga Coupling is a general purpose pre-compression type of coupling suitable for utilization in piston-driven devices or crushing units. The product has a reduced torsional stiffness compared to other couplings. Its elastomeric framework are available in hexagonal or octagonal rubber donut-shaped elements that features metal inserts at each apex. These metal inserts can be easily torqued during assembly without twisting the rubber beyond the limits of its elasticity. Furthermore, the Lovejoy Saga Coupling comprises of a pre-compressed rubber between each apex that is capable to withstand any potential stresses arising from the different forms of misalignment and torsional vibrations.
