• Highly flexible, backlash-free tire coupling
    • Nominal torque range from TKN = 1,600 Nm up to 90,000 Nm with 9 sizes
    • Temperature range: from –40 °C to +80 °C

    Owing to its low torsional stiffness and damping properties the ELPEX® coupling is very well suited to connecting machines with considerably non-uniform torque characteristics. Types with a fail-safe device between the flexible rings ensure emergency operation if the flexible rings are destroyed.

    • Suitable for high dynamic loads
    • Good damping properties
    • Available as a fail-safe coupling
    • Available as a shaft and flange coupling
    • Designs available that comply with API 610 and API 671

    For drives with periodically excited systems, such as

    • Internal combustion engines
    • Piston compressors
    • Piston pumps

    For drives subject to high shock loads or large shaft misalignments, for example in

    • Compressors
    • Excavators
    • Shredders

    Moreover suitable for

    • Mining and Cement: tube mills, vertical mills, crushers
    • Steel Production: shears, straightening machines, reversing rolling mills, pilger rolling mills
    • Sugar: sugar cane mills

    The ELPEX coupling’s transmission characteristics are determined essentially by the flexible rings. These flexible rings are manufactured from a natural rubber blend with a multi-ply fabric lining. They are split so that they can be changed without having to move the coupled machines.
