NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT: HIGH TORQUE METAL BELLOWS COUPLINGS RATED UP TO 100.000 NM
R+W, the world market and technology leader in metal bellows couplings has further expanded its product range to include a set of couplings capable of transmitting nominal torques of up to 100,000 Nm (Series BX).
Three basic configurations exist within the BX series, including flange mounted (BX1), keyway connection (BX4), and conical clamping ring (BX6) versions. These torsionally rigid couplings feature formed flexible bellows, circumferentially welded to their respective hubs and intermediate spacers. The all metal construction and axial flexibility of the bellows allow the couplings to run across an extreme range of temperatures; up to 300° C.
Each version is available in five different sizes, according to torque and shaft diameter requirements, with an overall range of shaft diameters (inch or metric) from 50 to 280mm. Depending on the size, dual bellows versions are used, compensating for parallel shaft misalignment of up to 7mm. The couplings are available for custom configuration and with a variety of quality and safety certifications, including ATEX certification for hazardous duty operation.
The BX series allows the excellent characteristics of the stainless steel bellows to benefit heavy duty equipment in the most extreme of conditions.
