Atex - compliant couplings from Flender

Posted: Friday 23rd June 2006

Flender Power Transmissionís extensive range of gear couplings includes ATEX-compliant models for hazardous areas.

Flender ATEX-approved couplings include N-EUPEX flexible jaw couplings, ARPEX steel torsionally rigid couplings and FLUDEX mechanical soft start couplings. N-EUPEX couplings compensate for shaft misalignment, are used in general mechanical engineering, and as high and low-speed couplings for pump drives and conveyors, with torque ranges from 19Nm up to 6200Nm and 23 sizes. In cases of wear to flexible components, N-EUPEX couplings will turn freely without metal-to-metal contact, of particular benefit in hazardous areas.

ARPEX all-steel couplings allow for radial, angular and axial shaft misalignments, are maintenance-free and have torque ranges from 5Nm up to 10,000,000Nm. They have a reduced backlash feature and offer lifetime operation when correctly aligned.

FLUDEX soft start couplings are ideal for accelerating large masses smoothly, with excellent shock damping properties and a power range up to 2500Kw. Suitable for medium and high torque applications in conveyors, mixers and drum drives, FLUDEX couplings provide torque limitation during start and overload and have excellent vibration separation and shock damping characteristics.

These are just three ATEX-compliant options from Flenderís extensive series of couplings. For more details, e-mail or tel 01274 657700. Flender Power Transmission is part of Siemens Automation and Drives.
