Bird-Johnson Expands Product Line —Brochure Available

Bird-Johnson Company, Walpole, Mass., has undertaken the exclusive U.S. distributorship for SKF Steel, Coupling Division, Hofors, Sweden. Under this agreement, BJCo will market the OK coupling to both marine and industrial concerns.

The OK-HB coupling will be made available to suit shaft diameters ranging from 25 mm to 1,000 mm. This translates into a torque transmission capacity of 258 ft./lbs. to 19,177,600 ft./lbs.

In addition to the HB type, Bird- Johnson will also introduce two new OK couplings to the U.S.

These are the OK/flange combination coupling and the industrial OKL coupling. Each is engineered to meet industry standards, and is approved by international classification societies.

The advantages to be realized from using an OK coupling—both from a cost and operating point of view—are detailed in a new brochure released by SKF. To obtain your copy, write to Carol A. Iredale, Bird-Johnson Company, 110 Norfolk Street, Walpole, Mass.
