The N-ARPEX all-steel coupling is suitable for driving pumps, fans, compressors, generator and turbine drives as well as paper and printing machine drives. The couplings are designed for a potentially explosive atmosphere in accordance with directive 2014/34/EU and fulfill the requirements of API610/ISO13709 and API671/ISO10441. N-ARPEX all-steel couplings are designed as standard for very low temperatures down to -50 degrees Celsius – which is up to ten degrees lower than previous versions in the ARPEX series.
Torque transmission accompanied by displacement compensation between the two machines to be connected is made possible by the all-steel coupling, which is backlash-free and torsionally rigid, but also flexible. Axial, angular and radial offset compensation directions are possible. The discs are made of stainless spring steel, are not subject to wear, and are consequently maintenance free.
