New ABB Dodge® Raptor coupling extends driven equipment life

2016-11-16 - This coupling’s patented split rubber element allows for easy assembly, reduced maintenance, and significantly decreases total costs.
ABB introduces the Dodge Raptor coupling that features patented WingLockTM technology, a finite-element optimised winged elastomeric design that provides longer driven equipment life and increased reliability.

WingLock technology increases surface area at the most critical regions of the element, resulting in higher bond strength, improved fatigue resistance, and up to 5.9x longer life than competitive urethane designs.

A non-lubricated flexible natural rubber element yields up to 50% lower stiffness, resulting in improved vibration damping, and industry leading misalignment capabilities. For reduced maintenance, the Raptor offers a split element for easy installation and replacement without moving or re-aligning connected equipment.

“Slotted clamp ring holes offer 187% extra clearance for mounting hardware, resulting in a noticeably easier installation,” explains Matt Wolford, Product Manager for Dodge couplings. “Raptor is also designed for drop-in interchangeability, ensuring this coupling works in many existing applications without any modifications. Plus, the Raptor is backed by an industry leading 5-year warranty, even when used with competitor’s components.”

Suitable for a broad range of industrial applications, Raptor is offered with Armored Elements for extra protection in extreme environments. Raptor couplings are also third-party ATEX Certified for use in hazardous environments. This new coupling can be integrated with ABB’s ATEX Certified motor-drive combination to create a power transmission package ideal for applications where equipment is used in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Available in close-coupled and spacer designs for a wide range of ANSI and ISO shaft gaps, Raptor couplings are offered with finished bore or Taper-Lock bushed hubs with bore sizes up to 229 mm and a torque range up to 38,438 Nm.
