CENTA FLEX A/AS Coupling
Centaflex A series couplings offer high flexibility and misalignment. They reduce vibrations.
It is capable of reducing torsional vibrations and shocks and reduces axial, radial and angular inconsistencies.
Among its applications: marine drives and gasoline and diesel pump-drive sets can be mentioned.
One of the positive points that can be mentioned is that it can be easily moved and installed and can be used as a shaft in different lengths.
A very important point to note is that the same rubber element can be used with different steels.
CENTAFLEX A series couplings are available in several standard configurations.
Electrically insulating and heat-resistant silicone or rubber construction is operationally safe and allows for reaction-free torque transmission even in high-torque applications.
Material: Natural Rubber (NR) or Silicone (SI)
Temperature tolerance capacity: NR (rubber) -45 degrees to +80 degrees Celsius / Silicone: -45 degrees to +120 degrees Celsius
Rubber Elements: available in different degrees of Shore hardness, increasing torsional flexibility and dampening vibrations and impacts.
Versatile Configuration: An extensive selection of adapters, flanges, and hubs provides exceptional customization options for the CENTAFLEX-A, enabling it to cater to the requirements of virtually any application.
Innovative Fastening: Axial-radial connections greatly simplify the assembly process of the CENTAFLEX-A, facilitating swift and straightforward replacements.
