ABB expands the Dodge® Raptor coupling product line

2017-05-15 - Innovative coupling is now available in three larger sizes
  • Maximum torque rating of 38,438 Nm
  • Up to 5.9x longer coupling life for longer driven equipment life and improved reliability
  • Easier installation and reduced maintenance in a broad range of applications

The Raptor tire coupling product line has expanded to include sizes E100, E120 and E140 to meet a wider range of coupling needs. The Raptor coupling utilizes patented WingLock™ technology, an optimized elastomeric element design to provide longer driven equipment life and increased reliability. This technology increases surface area at the most critical regions of the element, resulting in higher bond strength, improved fatigue resistance, and the longest life of any elastomeric coupling.

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 moving or re-aligning connected equipment. Slotted clamp ring holes offer extra clearance for mounting hardware, resulting in a noticeably easier installation.

Suitable for a broad range of industrial applications, Dodge Raptor couplings are third-party ATEX certified for use in hazardous environments. Raptor couplings can be integrated with ABB’s ATEX certified motor-drive combinations to create a complete package ideal for applications in potentially explosive atmospheres. 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 Taper-Lock bushed or finished bore hubs with bore sizes up to 229 mm and a torque range up to 38,438 Nm. Every Dodge Raptor coupling is backed by an industry leading 5-year warranty.
