KTR has introduced the Bowex GT, a curved-tooth gear coupling for processing pumps that is able to compensate for high displacements.

The double-cardanic coupling — designed for a shaft diameter of up to 38mm — enables positive-locking torque transmission with axial, radial and angular shaft measurement.

The coupling sleeve is made of fibre-reinforced nylon materials and is separated into two identical semi-shells.

Having unscrewed four screws, these can be disassembled easily and quickly without having to shift the motor or pump, according to the company.

Key benefits

  • Steel hub with nylon sleeve ensures optimum wear characteristics
  • Coupling does not produce any restoring forces
  • The load on the bearings and seals is minimised, thus reducing lifecycle costs
  • Bowex GT coupling is Atex approved
