Reich couplings for safety critical applications

German manufacturer, Reich-KUPPLUNGEN has developed a range of flexible couplings specifically targeted at fire pump systems used in emergency situations.

A key component within these systems, which must operate at the highest levels of performance and reliability, is the drive coupling used to transfer the power of the engine to the pump.

For fire pump applications driven by a combustion engine, Reich’s highly flexible VSK coupling has become established as an integral component for connecting the combustion engine to the right-angle gear drive of the fire pump system. Using the Reich AC-VSK coupling, the drive train can be protected from dynamic overload, reduce resonance-induced vibratory torques and provide a convenient connection between the combustion engine and drive shaft.
