Latest KTR power transmission technology suits small assembly space
28 Mar 2018
KTR’s ROTEX S-H is designed to be a cost effective solution for power transmission applications with limited mounting spaces.
The major benefit of the S-H’s four-screw spilt hub assembly is that it can be radially assembled, says the company, which eliminates the need to shift drive or driven ends, and ensures alignment of the system is maintained.
The cracking process results in two cast iron hub halves with cracked surfaces that are unique to each other. The two hub halves are remarried by way of two assembly screws, without a loss in performance or reduction to the overall power transmission torque rating.
The S-H coupling is ATEX approved, available in cast iron material and features all of the characteristics of the standard ROTEX jaw coupling design, preferred in industry since its initial design by KTR in 1965.
The ROTEX design offers torsional flexibility, for positive torque transmission, with effective damping of operational vibrations and shocks, adds the company. The product is also designed to be capable of handling axial, radial and angular misalignment.
