Flexible Coupling M13418

Product code: M13418

Fractional kW Flexible Couplings are specially developed couplings whereby torque is transmitted by rubber in shear, resulting in an unusually high degree of flexibility with effective absorption of torsional vibration.

These couplings comprise two steel bushes bonded to a high tensile rubber. Having no ungainly projections, they are pleasing in appearance and with no loose parts to handle are easy to install.

Misalignment Accommodation

The metal sleeves are so spaced that some angular misalignment is permitted without undue stress either on the bond or in the body of the rubber. Parallel misalignment is also accommodated, primarily through the shear stress of the rubber. It is advised, however, that misalignment between drive and driven units be kept to a minimum.

Noise Reduction
Shear stressed rubber prevents telegraphic transmission of sound and all such high frequency vibrations – therefore stops gear tooth noise, motor hum, etc., ordinarily transmitted through the driving shaft.
