Stainless Steel Discs in Factory-assembled Cartridge for Medium-duty Applications (Metric)

TSK coupling range is particularly suited for electric motor or turbine drives in critical process industry, marine and power generation. Torque is transmitted through two sets of membranes, separated by a spacer element, and protected by two guard rings in a pre-assembled transmission unit. The coupling provides a good level of angular, lateral and axial misalignment, while maintaining a high level of balance integrity. Standard options for spark resistance available.
