Improved Safety

Rotex Non-Sparking Coupling

08.04.2015 KTR has expanded its existing coupling line by introducing the Rotex Non-Sparking Coupling for maintenance-free use in potentially explosive environments. This failsafe innovation assures operation in cases of spider element wear while reliably preventing sparking.

The coupling‘s precision-machining positively influences its running properties and significantly increases its expected service life (Picture: KTR)

A conductive high-tenacity plastic injected onto the hub body, which continues to be made of steel or other metals such as aluminium, endows the coupling with its non-sparking properties. The synthetic material prevents any static charging and is also designed to be so hardwearing that, even in cases of elastomer wear out, torque will still be transmitted without any danger of sparking. As a result, maintenance work can be postponed to a convenient time. The shaft coupling has a compact design and can be axially plugged in. It offers good dynamic properties, excellent vibration damping and a low moment of inertia. The coupling‘s precision-machining positively influences its running properties and significantly increases its expected service life. The coupling is also available in various double-cardanic versions for large shaft misalignments that maintain low restoring forces and ensure sound dynamic properties.

Facts For Decision-Makers:

  • no sparking
  • vibration damping
  • increased service life
