KTR Gearex Couplings
- High power density
- Torque up to 2,750,000 Nm
- Operative range -20° C to +80° C
- AGMA Standard 9008-B00
KTR Gearex couplings made from steel with grease lubrication and toroidal sealing ring correspond to the international standard. Being flexible shaft connections they are suitable for a positive torque transmission. In addition, they ensure to compensate for axial, radial and angular shaft displacements.
GEARex® Operating principle
According to the operating principle of the well-known crowned gear edge pressures in the spline are avoided in case of angular and radial displacements. Permanent grease lubrication produces a better friction ratio of the spline with an operation almost free from wear along with a long service life of the coupling.
In order to ensure a regular and verified lubrication in assembled condition, two connections for hydraulics are arranged opposite to each other radially on each coupling sleeve. As a result a complete Gearex coupling has four connections being offset to each other by 90°.
The interior of the coupling is sealed by means of toroidal sealing rings. The feather keys have to be sealed against escape of lubricants during the assembly.
