• Highly flexible, backlash-free tire coupling
    • Nominal torque range from TKN = 24 Nm up to 14,500 Nm with 15 sizes
    • Temperature range: from –50 °C to +50 °C for natural rubber materials, from
      –15 °C to +70 °C for chloroprene rubber

    Highly flexible ELPEX-B® couplings transmit torques without circumferential backlash in machines with non-uniform torque characteristics. They are resistant to wear and maintenance-free. The hubs of the ELPEX-B couplings are made of high-quality cast iron or steel. The torque is transmitted by a flexible tire reinforced with a cord ply.

    • Compensation of very large shaft misalignments
    • Independent of direction of rotation (suitable for reversing operation)
    • The rubber tire can be replaced easily without the need to move the coupled machines
    • Easy mounting on the shafts is possible with taper bushes
    • Mining and Cement: crushers
    • Steel Production: shears, straightening machines, reversing rolling mills, pilger rolling mills
    • Power Generation: air condensers
    • Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals: driers, lauter tuns, mixers, agitators, reactors
    • Pulp and Paper: wastewater purification plants
    • Food and beverage: lauter tuns, reactors, agitators
    • Sugar: diffusers, sugar cane mills

    Instead of the standard rubber tire, a chloroprene rubber tire is available. This option is labeled FRAS, i.e. fire-resistant and anti static.
