Properties

  • Design:
    • With a single ISO 4762 radial clamping screw per hub.
    • 
Laser welded connection between hubs and bellows.
    • Self opening clamp system optional: Loosening the clamping screw applies force to the pin, which forces the clamp into the open position for easy mounting and dismounting.
  • Temperature range: -40° C to +300° C (-40° F to +572° F)
  • Tolerance: Overall clearance between hub and shaft 0.01-0.05 mm.
  • Material:Bellows, clamping hubs, and clamping screws made from stainless steel; detailed specifications upon request.
  • Speeds: Up to 10,000 rpm;
in excess of 10,000 rpm with finely balanced version (up to G = 2.5).
  • Properties of Bellows Coupling Model BKS:
    • for high temperatures
    • compact
    • easy to mount
    • suited for space restricted installations
