The KD33 coupling is easy to handle, install and maintain. It is designed specifically for cooling tower drives and long span applications.
Kop-Flex revolutionized the industry in early 1950's by pioneering a high performance gear coupling for Turbomachinery. Gear couplings are still the work horse in hundreds of applications throughout the world.
Kop-Flex has innovated an extremely reliable, maintenance free, diaphragm coupling with over 10 million hours of operation. This patented design has eliminated the failure mode and reliability issue with welded design currently available in the market.
The innovative Kop-Flex high performance disc coupling design provides a highly reliable, rotating machinery connection. Factory assembly of the disc packs ensures optimum quality and performance and keeps installation time to a minimum.
Kop-flex® offers a shear cartridge assembly and shear pin type. Both are to be mounted between the rolling mill stand or gearbox and the driving equipment.
Gear spindles are available in four main configurations in order to solve the most difficult of applications. These include the Steel, Aluminum and Paper industries. They are typically used in the main mill drive.
The floating shafting of the KD® coupling series and Gear couplings is designed for medium and heavy duty applications. These require longer shaft separation when the driving and driven shafts are widely separated.
