The New Dodge QD Para-Flex Coupling

Baldor Electric is proud to announce a new addition to our Baldor-Dodge coupling product offering: The QD Bushed Para-Flex® coupling. To complement our Taper-Lock and bored-to-size style flanges, the QD flange design now enhances our industry leading capabilities. These QD flanges are available from stock and accommodate our well known Para-Flex elements.

The Baldor-Dodge Para-Flex QD (PXQD) product line is available in sizes PX50 through PX200, with torque ratings through 82,500 in-lbs. Offering a greater bore capacity than competitors, Para-Flex QD flanges allow customers to save money by downsizing their coupling selections. Like the Taper-Lock bushing, the QD bushing allows for easy installation and removal with minimal shaft damage, reducing overall replacement costs.

When used with the Baldor-Dodge Para-Flex element, the complete Para-Flex couplings perform in difficult applications, providing superior misalignment capabilities than other styles of couplings. The flexible design is crucial in preventing damage to connected equipment. The Para-Flex coupling offers an industry leading 5-year limited warranty.
