KTR: Pump coupling for explosive atmospheres

Monday, March 9th, 2015 by admin Posted in In Gerneral, Pump Drives

ktr-3The jaw geometry of the Rotex Non-Sparking consists of a conductive high-tenacity plastic that is injected onto the hub body which continues to be made of steel or other metals such as aluminium. The newly developed synthetic material prevents any static charging and is also designed to be so hardwearing that even in cases of elastomer wear out, torque will still be transmitted without any danger of sparking. As a result, maintenance work can be postponed to a convenient time frame.
