Jaw Couplings

Clutch Engineering offers a variety of jaw couplings that act as flexible couplings with an additional failsafe feature. Jaw couplings can be comprised of an elastomer or spider sandwiched between two hubs. These couplings are easy to install and provide a failsafe feature in their continued capacity to transfer torque in the event elastomer failure. For additional information about jaw couplings, contact our team directly.

CJ Jaw Couplings

Clutch Engineering offers these well-made Lovejoy CJ type curved jaw couplings for applications such as pumps, gear boxes, compressors, mixers, and more. Lovejoy CJ jaw couplings are a mechanical solution with improved torsional softness, compared to standard jaw couplings. Urethane spiders integrated into the product are designed to provide high abrasion resistance and elasticity, along with good damping characteristics. These couplings are easy to install and they can be used in a fail-safe capacity, due to their ability to continue a transfer of torque in the event of the elastomer failing. There are four different elastomers available, to best fit the needs of your system. The spiders are available in a variety of shore hardnesses, each providing a different level of torque capacity, damping, and chemical resistance. Torque range: 35 to 309,750 lb-in (4 to 34,996 Nm) Typical applications: Pumps, gear boxes, compressors, blowers and fans, mixers, conveyors, generator sets

L/AL Jaw Couplings

Lovejoy L and AL type jaw couplings are specially designed coupling products available from Clutch Engineering. AL couplings feature aluminum hubs to achieve a lighter weight and enhanced corrosion protection. The AL Type coupling is made from two hubs and one spider. Lovejoy offers the largest variety of stock bore/keyway combinations in the industry. These jaw couplings require no lubrication and are very reliable under various conditions. AL Type couplings use the same spiders as L Type couplings, except AL150 which has four jaws instead of three. Torque range: 3.5 to 12,500 lb-in (0.4 to 1,412 Nm) Typical applications: Pumps, gear boxes, compressors, blowers, mixers, conveyors
