 *Use 1.5 service factor for uneven load, non-reversing applications. Use 2 service factor for heavy shock, reversing applications.
SPROCKET MOUNTING:

1. Position sprockets (coupling halves) to allow a gap between sprocket as indicated.

2. Align the shafts as accurately as possible to obtain the longest service life from the coupling.

Angular Alignment: Coupling will tolerate a maximum of 1° angular misalignment, but for optimum life, a maximum of 1/2° is recommended. Angular alignment is

checked by keeping both shafts stationary and taking a measurement with a feeler gauge at 12:00, 3:00, 6:00 and 9:00. The difference between 12:00 and 6:00 will give

the error in alignment in the vertical plane. Likewise, the difference between 3:00 and 9:00 will give the error in alignment in the horizontal plane.

Parallel Alignment: Can be checked with a straight edge placed on two sprockets. Alignment should be checked in at least two places at 90° intervals.

CHAIN HANDLING:

1. When the shafts are properly aligned, the chain will easily wrap around the sprockets for final coupling assembly.

2. Final assembly of the coupling can be accomplished with the press fit grooved pin.

3. Caution must be exercised when installing the press fit groove pin to insure that the Delrin link is not damaged. Support link immediately adjacent to the pin by means of a “C” clamp, vise grip pliers or other similar device.
