|S-Flex Coupling - Inherently Insulated|
Other primarily all metallic coupling designs (i.e. - Lovejoy's ATEX Certified Disc line) are inherently not insulated. These type couplings offer a continuous electrically conductive pathway through the length of the coupling.
Lastly, there are a subset of coupling types that, while not perfect conductors, are also not robustly insulated. These couplings would include lubricated metallic couplings (i.e.- Lovejoy's Gear and Grid lines).
|An Insulated Lovejoy Disc Coupling|
Note: When asking a manufacturer to modify a traditionally conductive coupling into an isolated design, it is important to ask them if and how the changes will impact the performance and ratings of the coupling (as it may change from catalog ratings).
Should you have further questions on electrically insulated couplings and/or require an insulated coupling solution, please do not hesitate to contact Lovejoy and request to speak with an application engineer.
