The Disc Coupling meets all ATEX requirements for mining applications and other applications with combustible dust and gas atmospheres.

Each Baldor-Dodge Disc Coupling has the following ATEX ratings:

  • I M2 c Sizes 94 to 310 with an ambient range of -30˚C to +65˚C
  • II 2 GD c 135˚C (T4) Sizes 94 to 310 with an ambient range of -30˚C to +65˚C
  • II 2 GD c 100˚C (T5) Sizes 94 to 210 with an ambient range of -30˚C to +50˚C

Baldor’s Dodge Disc Couplings already provide higher torque and misalignment capabilities than the leading competitor and meet API 610 design specifications off the shelf. With the addition of ATEX Certification, the Baldor-Dodge Disc Coupling can further meet customer needs, providing a superior coupling solution around the world.
