Successful test of hydraulic actuated flange coupling FKH: 

The new generation of flange coupling is designed as a hybrid system. Clamping and loosening is done by using a hydraulic system and/ or manually. Assembling time is reduced to a few minutes while using the hydraulic system. Small sizes can be clamped by using a hand pump with relatively low pressure (around 300 bar). Handling and assembling are easily done and the system is mechanically blocked when clamped. The hydraulic system is completely separated from force transmitting friction surfaces.

Beside the new hydraulic system, this coupling type is able to transmit higher bending moments. They can also be connected to standard couplings of type FK and FKB, so combining them is also possible.
