Installation of couplings for reducers
Jan 04, 2019

When installing the reducer, the center should be aligned, and the error should not be greater than the compensation amount of the reducer coupling used. Good alignment can extend the service life and achieve the desired transmission efficiency. When the transmission member is mounted on the output shaft, hammer striking is prohibited. Usually, the transmission member is pressed by the bolts, and a fixed coupling is not recommended.


The coupling should be installed in a position where the staff can conveniently approach the oil mark, vent plug and drain plug. After the reducer coupling is installed, the accuracy of the installation positioning and all bolts should be thoroughly checked and the coupling should be able to rotate under reasonable force after installation.


The reducer is splashed and lubricated in the oil pool. Before running, the user needs to remove the screw plug of the vent hole and replace it with a vent plug. According to different level of usage, users should open the oil level plug screw to check the oil level line, refill from the oil level plug until the lubricating oil overflows from the oil level plug screw hole, and then screw the oil level plug before a new test run. The test run shall be no less than 2
