New Brochure from Lovejoy, Inc. Provides Specifications


Peace of mind is priceless. Peace of mind is the knowledge that replacement parts will fit like a glove, avoiding lengthy shutdown times and the possibility of lost revenue.

For reliability and longevity, the maintenance crew can rely on the Lovejoy 1000 Series Grid Coupling interchangeable with industry standard hubs and grid springs up to size 1200.

Top-of-the-line quality standards ensure a grid coupling design that will lend the part greater tensile strength and a longer life than standard grid couplings, even under harsh or caustic conditions, such as the aggregate, food processing, paper and petrochemical industries.

The Lovejoy 1000 Series Grid Couplings cushions shock loads and compensates for parallel, angular or axial misalignment. The all-metal series offers high-torque, high-horsepower operation while featuring an advanced design with a high-tensile alloy grid that reduces vibration by as much as 30 percent. And the tooth profile of the grid hub is shot blasted for added strength and longer life. Cover fasteners are available in either metric or imperial sizes.

The new brochure, conveniently three-hole punched to fit into a handy reference binder on the shop floor, details the multiple types of couplings interchangeable with the various sizes of 1000 Series Grid coupling. Other detailed information lays out minimum and maximum bore sizes, hub diameters, lengths and set screw sizes for both the horizontal and vertical-style grid couplings. A comprehensive listing of service factors by application type, from conveyors to compressors, screens, pumps, fans, generators, lifts, mixers and elevators is also included. The 1000 Series Grid coupling services many needs within the lumber, aggregate, paper, rubber and oil industries, with multiple potential applications for metal rolling mills as well.

All Lovejoy 1000 Series Grid couplings are available with horizontally split or vertically split covers. The horizontal split, designed for limited spaces and reversing shafts, allows easy access for grid lubrication or replacement. Vertical split covers, made from stamped steel, are ideal for higher operating speeds. Regardless of cover types, hubs and grids are identical and interchangeable within given size ranges.

The 1000 Series Grid Coupling is just one of many engineered solutions for industrial maintenance and performance provided by Lovejoy, Inc., an emerging leader in the global power transmission market.
