GEARex

PRODUCT INFORMATION

GEARex® couplings are an all-steel design offer flexible compensation for axial, radial and angular shaft displacement.

Small dimensions and light weight, along with a small mass moment of inertia, results in a wide range of applications for GEARex® couplings. Numerous coupling sizes to cover torque transmission from 930 Nm to 820.000 Nm with shaft dimensions up to a maximum of Ø 450 mm available. The GEARex® design also corresponds with AGMA standards (American Gear Manufacturer Association).

GEARex® couplings are used in every range of general engineering that require high operating safety and a long service life provided by the reliable grease lubrication of the crowned spline. Pressure in the spline is avoided in case of angular and radial displacements while permanent grease lubrication also produces a better friction ratio of the spline with an operation almost free from wear along with a long service life of the coupling.

GEARex® couplings are suitable for power transmission in drives used in hazardous areas. They 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.
