Lovejoy is well known for its test stand disc couplings across a number of customers and sales territories. Specific to me, the attached photo shows a Lovejoy disc coupling being used in a gearbox test stand application that is capable of full load testing up to 2.5 KW.
This test stand is used to ensure that rebuilt gearboxes are properly assembled, bearings and gearing are working properly, and that the unit is operating oil tight.
The shown disc coupling comes complete with shrink disk hubs for fast disassembling and reassembling.
