Characteristics of the Escogrid – series couplings:

The Escogrid series couplings have a lubricated design that combines the economy and high torque capacity of a gear coupling with the torsional flexibility of an elastomer coupling. Used for general purposes, Escogrid couplings have a unique ability to reduces vibration by as much as 30%, and cushions shock loads to safeguard driving and driven power transmission equipment. The grid spring element absorbs impact energy by spreading it out over time, and thus reduces the magnitude of the peak loads. This is possible thanks to the progressive contact that occurs between the curved profile of the hub teeth and the flexible grid. As the load increases, more of the tooth comes into contact with the flexible grid spring element.
