Baldor-102714-body.jpgBaldor Electric has added the QD Bushed Para-Flex to its coupling product line, which complements the company’s Taper-Lock and bored-to-size style flanges. The product line is available in sizes PX50 through PX200, with torque ratings through 82,500 in-lbs. Officials claim the Para-Flex QD flanges allow customers to save money by downsizing their coupling selections. Like the Taper-Lock bushing, the QD bushing allows ease of installation and removal with minimal shaft damage, reducing overall replacement costs. The Para-Flex coupling is offered with a five-year limited warranty.
