New Products: Disc Couplings

Torsiflex disc couplings have hightorque, high-reliability, and zeromaintenance characteristics

Torsiflex disc couplings have hightorque, high-reliability, and zeromaintenance characteristics. The couplings, which operate at 0.26 to 85-kNm loads and speeds of 8,000 to 3,600 rpm (smallest to largest), are said to last 20 to 30 years. The torsionally stiff and backlash-free couplings also have an antiflail feature, and can handle significant levels of angular, radial, and axial misalignment without any loss of operating performance.

The couplings have no moving parts and require no lubrication. The presence of oil in the operating environment will not effect coupling operation. For hostile working environments, special materials and surface coatings are available, as are spark-free Atex-rated versions for hazardous environments.
