Addax Drive Shaft Composite Coupling LRR485.425

Addax drive shaft composite couplings are high-strength and made especially for cooling towers. Available for all sizes of inputs ranging from 350:275 to 850:1225. Made the USA Рare a solid choice for any cooling tower.

Product description

The Rexnord Addax Composite Cooling Tower Coupling delivers the best value for the cooling tower industry by providing excellent features such as:

  • Corrosion resistance
  • High-misalignment capacity
  • Excellent fatigue resistance
  • Low weight

Low Weight Means Easy Installation

The advanced composite, full-floating center section of Rexnord Addax Composite Couplings weigh less than 25% of a comparable steel spacer. In fact, most of these couplings weigh less than 100 (45.36 kg) pounds, which can often eliminate the need for special lifting equipment and simplify handling and installation.

Additional information



  • 13 sizes available
  • Custom spacer lengths up to 275 inches (6,985 mm)
  • Up to 5.06 inches (130 mm) bore capacity
  • Up to 36,200 in-lb (4,090 Nm) torque capacity
  • Up to 500 hp
  • Can span from motor to gearbox without intermediate support bearings
  • Corrosion-resistant parts lower cost of ownership and extend service life
  • Patented unitized flex elements eliminate fretting
  • Can ship in less than 24 hours if required
