Flange coupling

  • 29-Jun-2010 01:30 EDT

KTR's BoWex FLE-PAC flange coupling for hydrostatic drives on construction machinery features carbonic material that ensures longer operating cycles. As hydrostatic applications in agricultural and construction machinery increase demand for extended life, KTR combines two standard separate materials into the coupling flange to optimize performance and improve durability. A composite design creates a connection to engine flywheels with nonstandard dimensions. The polyamide flange of the BoWex is reinforced with carbon to reduce abrasion, and flanges can be produced with nonstandard dimensions. BoWex does not require the assembly of complex adapter components; flanges are designed with standard BoWex hubs, incorporating KTR’s curved tooth technology to offer various options. Standard flywheels are available, as are flexible options for custom requirements.
