The magnetic couplings of the MINEX range are permanent-magnetic couplings transmitting the torque without contact through magnetic forces between two magnetic rotors.
The standard type MINEX-S with containment shroud and magnets positioned radially ensures hermetic separation of driving and driven side in pumps and agitators.
As a hysteresis coupling version, it is in turn suitable as a wear-free overload protection alternatively to classical safety couplings.
With the disk coupling which is optionally available, the magnets face each other axially so that torques can be transmitted through-plane walls. The transmittable torque can be varied by adjusting the air gap.
