Renold introduces three new ranges of shaft couplings
New from Renold are the RBI, Hydrastart and UBI ranges of couplings. The Hi-Tec RBI range, designed for industrial applications, takes the existing RB offering to the next level, by incorporating a new block profile to increase torque throughput by 50%.
The new Hydrastart range will come complete with Renoldflex, meaning that it will be ‘drop-in’ so the drive assembly can remain in place, allowing the Hydrastart to be swapped out. With the only bespoke machining being the bores on the end of the couplings, which is not always required, lead times will be greatly reduced and in the majority of cases, the Hydrastart can be dispatched the same day.
Finally the Hi-Tec UBI is a low cost rubber-in-compression coupling range designed for general industrial applications. It is available with standard grade rubber, or the option of a silicone alternative for high temperatures. The RBI and Hydrastart are available now, while the UBI will follow in the summer.
