Baldor introduces new Dodge® QD bushed Para-Flex couplings


General DPN

Fort Smith, Ark. – Baldor Electric Company is proud to announce a new addition to its Baldor-Dodge coupling product offering -- the QD bushed Para-Flex coupling.

The QD flange design complements the company’s Taper-Lock and bored-to-size style flanges. The QD flanges are available from stock and accommodate Baldor-Dodge Para-Flex elements.

The Baldor-Dodge Para-Flex QD (PXQD) product line is available in sizes PX50 through PX200, with torque ratings through 82,500 in-lbs. Para-Flex QD flanges offer greater bore capacity, allowing customers to save money by downsizing their coupling selections. Like the Taper-Lock bushing, the QD bushing allows for easy installation and removal with minimal shaft damage, reducing overall replacement costs.

When used with the Para-Flex element, the complete Para-Flex couplings perform in difficult applications, providing greater misalignment capabilities than other styles of couplings. The flexible design is crucial in preventing damage to connected equipment. The Para-Flex coupling offers an industry leading 5-year limited warranty.
