Rexnord Announces the New Long Span XTSR and 4-Bolt XTSR Disc Couplings

Expanding our Thomas Coupling product offering

Milwaukee, WI (USA) — Rexnord is proud to introduce the latest addition to our line of Thomas XTSR Disc Couplings, the Long Span XTSR (XTSRLS) and the 4-Bolt XTSR offering (an extension of the 8-Bolt and 6-Bolt configurations). Designed for applications primarily in the Energy sector, the 4-Bolt XTSR and XTSRLS also have common applications in the Industrial Equipment and Material Handling sectors, including Industrial Fans and Centrifugal Compressors, Blowers, ANSI & API Pumps, Chemical Processing, Gas Turbines, Pulp & Paper, and Oil & Gas among others.  

Primarily used in pump, fan, blower and compressor applications, the XTSRLS Disc Coupling was designed for longer spans, up to 349 inches. “The XTSRLS is an exciting new product that replaces legacy Thomas SN, SN-GA, and SN-Single products that have a very mature product lifecycle. It enables us to bring value to our end-users by featuring a modular design, higher torque capacity and an optimized bore design that is suited for floating shaft applications requiring long distances between shaft ends, such as pulp & paper machines, turbines, and compressors” says Chino Imediegwu, Director Global Product Management for Couplings and Shaft Management Solutions products.

Developed for use in applications such as pumps, blowers, and air compressors, the new 4-Bolt XTSR disc coupling design offers a more optimal solution for lower power rating applications. The new range of optimized sizes, “brings a significant competitive advantage and plugs a hole in our XTSR disc coupling product line by offering right-sized solutions for our customer’s applications where we were oversized in the past”, adds Chino Imediegwu.

The 4-Bolt XTSR disc Coupling and the XTSRLS products are available for order in all markets served globally. For more information on Rexnord Couplings, visit Ordering information is also available by contacting 800-767-3539 (USA).
