General Technical Description
With RCT couplings REICH offers an optimal drive solution for the connection of diesel engines to hydraulic pumps. Due to the torsionally stiff design of the RCT coupling, critical resonances can be shifted into the range above the operating speeds. This enables sub critical operation of the drive without passing through detrimental torsional vibration amplitudes.
The RCT coupling, like the decade-long proven ARCUSAFLEX® coupling, is designed as an axially pluggable flange coupling. The coupling element consists of a robust metal inner body with a thin rubber coating that effectively dampens torque shocks. In addition, small axial, radial and angular displacements which are common to flanged hydraulic drives can be compensated for.
Numerous standardized tooth profiles ensure a backlash-free clamping connection between the RCT coupling and the pump shaft. The coupling flanges are matched to SAE flywheel dimensions.
As a supplementary service, REICH also offers a multitude of bellhousing flanges through which the vast majority of combustion engines and hydraulic pumps can be connected.
