BoWex

PRODUCT INFORMATION

BoWex® M couplings are curved tooth gear couplings which can provide flexible shaft connections while compensating for axial, radial and angular shaft misalignment. BoWex®’s curved-tooth design relieves any edge pressure in the spline associated with angular and radial displacements allowing the BoWex® to operate almost free from wear. BoWex® M couplings can be assembled vertically or horizontally with no need for any special assembly tools.

Furthermore, a material combination of steel hubs and polyamide sleeves allows for maintenance-free continuous operation with very low friction on the teeth.

While any metallic materials tend to “corrode“ in case of dry running, slide combinations with polyamide and steel are operative without any lubrication and maintenance. The standard polyamide material is characterised by the following positive features:

– High thermal stability (+ 100 °C)

– Good viscosity even in case of low temperatures

– Favourable slide-friction behaviour

– Very good electrical insulating property

– Good resistance to chemicals

BoWex® couplings are certified according to EC standard 94/9/EC (ATEX95) as units of category 2G/2D, therefore are suitable for use in hazardous zone areas 1, 2, 21 and 22.

IN COUNTRY SUPPORT

With a presence in Bahrain KTR Couplings can offer a technical design support and maintenance support services. This means we can offer a level of service for replacement parts and design support that our competitors cannot. In fact, KTR has a truly international reach from which to support your business – 24 dedicated global subsidiary offices and a sales presence in over 60 countries worldwide. This is another reason why international businesses choose KTR Couplings.

TRUE COST OF COMPONENT FAILURE

At KTR Couplings we understand that component failure costs far more than the value of the component replacement. Some failures can lead to protracted system down-time that causes a significant loss to the business. So overall the cost of the component is a very small consideration and the use of more expensive components which provide higher performance, improved reliability and longer life can in fact save your business money.
