This failsafe innovation assures operation in cases of spider element wear while reliably preventing sparking. The jaw geometry of the Rotex Non-Sparking consists of a conductive high tenacity plastic that prevents any static charging and is also designed to be so hard wearing that even in cases of elastomer wear out, torque will still be transmitted without any danger of sparking. The unit is certified under EU directive 94/9/EC (ATEX 95) and suitable for the use in explosive atmospheres. The shaft coupling has a compact design and can be axially plugged in.
