TB Woods L-Jaw coupling line now interchangeable

June 8, 2016

The TB Wood’s line of L-Jaw couplings has recently been expanded to include a larger range of bore sizes, as well as new aluminum and stainless steel hubs.

TB Wood’s jaw couplings are part-for- part interchangeable with industry-standard designs, according to the company. A new L-Jaw Interchange Guide (P-8017- TBW) is available for download from the Literature Portal on the TB Woods website.

TB Wood’s L-Jaw couplings are easy to install and require no lubrication or maintenance, while providing good vibration isolation and chemical resistance, the company said.

A wide range of sizes is offered with torque ratings up to 6228 in. lbs. and bore sizes up to 2-7/8 in. diameter. Couplings can accommodate up to 1˚ of angular misalignment and have an operating temperature range of -60˚ to 250˚F.

Units feature a fail-safe design that allows equipment to continue to drive if the elastomer fails.

The right L-Jaw coupling for a specific application can be easily selected using the convenient Coupling Selection Program on the TB Woods website.
