Power transmission specialist Lovejoy LLC has further expanded its European presence and now also produces torsional couplings of the LK series in its own subsidiary company R+L Hydraulics GmbH, headquartered in Werdohl/Germany. The LK torsional couplings are ideal for applications in mobile hydraulics. They are used in applications with diesel, gasoline or natural gas engines which drive one or more flange-mounted hydraulic pumps. The LK torsional coupling is a stable, two-part coupling consisting of an element or flywheel adapter and a hub for connection to a shaft. The couplings are torsionally very stiff, enabling drives of hydraulic pumps and similar equipment with low mass or inertia to operate below critical speeds. Typical applications include excavators, loaders or vibratory rollers.

 

LK torsional couplings are usable with all engine-driven hydrostatic applications in the low to mid power range. They are maintenance-free and are characterized by low weight, high torsional stiffness and long service life. Their performance spectrum includes all ranges from 125 to 6000 Nm. The shape and length of the hubs are modifiable, different flange positions are possible. Various series are available for standardized SAE flywheels and non-standardized flywheels. R+L Hydraulics offers application support and on-site assessment for the respective implementation options.
