R + W drive elements has been introduced in the context of its new series of Slats precision couplings Among other things, introduced a model that meets the requirements of the American Petroleum Institute. The so-called LPA model consists of two clutch hubs, two disk packs and one intermediate piece. By a special holding device, the intermediate piece remains after installation of the clutch at any time in its original position.
In addition, so emergency running properties can be ensured that allow the torque transmission for a certain time even after a malfunction. As standard there is the LPA coupling with keyways, other connection options on request. The adapter is individually removable with mounted clutch hubs which allows the radial mounting of the clutch.
Together with three other models, the LP model series now covers torques from 350 to 20.000 Nm with six series.
