Baldor's Raptor tire couplings come in finished bore, Taper-Lock, and QD bushed hubs, with bore sizes up to 9 inches and a torque range up to 340 in-lb.0
Baldor is expanding the Raptor tire coupling product line to include sizes E100, E120 and E140, with a maximum torque rating of 340,340 in-lb. The Raptor coupling utilizes patented WingLock technology, an optimized elastomeric element designed to provide longer driven equipment life and increased reliability. A non-lubricated natural rubber element results in lower stiffness, improved vibration damping and industry leading misalignment capabilities. For reduced maintenance, the Raptor offers a split element for easy replacement without having to move or re-align connected equipment. Slotted clamp ring holes offer extra clearance for mounting hardware, resulting in a noticeably easier installation. Raptor elements are also available as an armored element that exceeds ASTM 1149-07 rubber deterioration standards for use in extreme environments. Available in both close-coupled and spacer designs for a wide range of ANSI and ISO shaft gaps, Raptor couplings are offered with finished bore, Taper-Lock, and QD bushed hubs, with bore sizes up to 9 inches and a torque range up to 340 in-lb.
