T2-17 3.3.2.1d    Sleeve Type Coupling (Geargrip) A sleeve type coupling consists of two splined hubs with a mating intermediate member of molded neoprene. Because of its construction features, it is capable of normal operation with angular shaft misalignments up to 2. Lubrication is not required. All parts are replaceable without disturbing adjacent equipment provided sufficient shaft length is allowed by sliding coupling hubs clear of the sleeve member during disassembly. Select the proper size for your application from Table 5 and follow the selection instructions. Sleeve Type Coupling Selection Procedure a. Determine motor characteristics. b. Determine service conditions. c. Select the coupling model with an equivalent or slightly greater horsepower than the calculated value in b  in     Table 5. d. Turn to Geargrip couplings in the product section and select the specific assembly or individual components     in that model number. Other types of couplings are also available and are fully described along with technical specifications in the SDP/SI catalogs dealing with couplings [4].
