Flender is expanding the portfolio of its versatile coupling series N-Eupex by introducing three new types. The new merchandise allow customers additional flexibility of their methods without losing the compact design and excessive load capability of a pin coupling.
The new N-Eupex ERN is equipped with a torque limiter, which provides much more
safety in the drivetrain in lots of functions. The coupling variant permits users to
specify a maximum torque in order that critical torques for the motor and output machine
usually are not transmitted. Machines and methods are protected against overload and
injury, thus considerably increasing system availability.
With the N-Eupex B plus clamping component, Flender introduces a second new
coupling that ensures frictionally engaged clamping connections. In this case, the
plain, cylindrical machine shaft end is linked to the coupling hub via a clamping
connection with no feather key and service ability is elevated. For example,
meeting or substitute of worn elastomers may be carried out rather more simply.
No connecting machine parts must be moved, the time required is halved
and so is the downtime of the machine.
With the N-Eupex DKS, a new double-cardanic coupling is introduced as a “short
version” into Flender’s modular system. While the DK sort, which was launched in
2020, addresses the pump market with normal enlargement items for normed shaft
distances, the DKS is the shortest attainable double-cardanic solution for the market.
The shortened total size permits cost-optimized use with a small shaft distance
dimension with out shedding the advantages of a double-cardanic coupling connection.
New elastomers for the pin couplings round off the modular extensions. In addition
to the beforehand used rubber parts made from NBR, Flender now also offers
elastomers made of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). Following เกจวัดแรงดันแก๊ส
enhance for all N-Eupex couplings with NBR packings in 2020, using TPU
packings allows the power density to be increased by another 20 percent on
average. For sizes 300 and above, the familiar NBR elastomer is combined with
cloth inserts and the torque capacity is once more raised.
“With a view to the long tradition of cam couplings, our improvement engineers are
systematically engaged on rising the number of mixtures even further. The
2022 enhancements give our customers a broad range of sustainable choices for
optimizing their machines and methods even more and reducing maintenance,”
explains André Artmann, Head of Coupling Sales.
