Unlike tire couplings that will add axial loading on your equipment bearings as the equipment runs at higher speed, the A Series design allows you to easily replace the insert without moving either piece of equipment.​

The A Series design is compact and fully conforms with ATEX, ANSI and ISO requirements. The design can be supplied in close coupled, spacer and dual spacer versions to cover your equipment needs. The close coupled hubs and spacers have six or eight teeth on one end. The spacer shaft hubs are all made using high grade carbon steel. The split insert, which is made of specially compounded urethane, fits over the hub / spacer teeth. The retaining ring is made of steel and is located with two setscrews. Bolts are supplied with the spacer shaft hubs and a specially formed thread is used in the spacer piece to lock and retain bolts in place during operation without the need for any other locking mechanism. ​
