CENTAFLEX-R Series Torsional Couplings

Extremely robust design for heavy duty applications
Fail-safe design with rubber rollers yields smooth operation and reliable transmission
Oil resistant and tolerant to high temperatures
A highly flexible coupling with progressive characteristics used in heavy duty applications.
The CENTAFLEX-R boasts an extremely robust and fail-safe design with rubber rollers subjected only to compressive stress. Characterized by a slight stiffness at lower speeds and a moderately increased stiffness at rising torques for smooth operation and reliable transmission over the entire high allowable energy loss. Suitable for high ambient temperatures, the design includes oil-resistance and even higher temperature resistance. Delivered with fail-safe device and for a variety of shaft connections. With flywheel connections acc. to SAE. Also available for non-standard flywheels.

Rubber Rollers: A robust roller coupling design, ideal for boat drives, providing a very low stiffness at low torque which shifts the torsional resonance below idle speed and prevents gear chatter.
Temperature Resistant: A temperature resistant elastomer with high dampening features at high ambient temperatures
Rubber Rollers: Special “HD” rubber rollers are available for heavy duty applications (also oil resistant)

What are the benefits of the CENTAFLEX-R?
Run-quiet design with low stiffness at a low torque

Reliable

Using the rubber-in-compression principle with rubber rollers between cams, the coupling offers high reliability as it is free from bonding

Low Torsional Stiffness

Ideal for boat drives, providing low stiffness at low torque which shifts the torsional resonance below idle speed

Durable

The option of “HD” rubber rollers and the CENTAFLEX-R’s high temperature resistance makes this a very durable product

High Quality

The associated cams are profiled using sophisticated computer design, backed by extensive physical testing.

CENTAFLEX-R Products
CENTA torsionally soft couplings offer optimum service life and uncompromising results
CENTAFLEX-RV
Highly flexible intermediate coupling with progressive characteristic. For drive concepts with many drive shaft variants.

Combination of highly flexible roller coupling and built-in bearing support. Characterised by slight stiffness at lower speeds and moderately increased stiffness at rising torques. Dampens torsional vibrations and noise. Ensures smooth operation and long lifespan of the coupled units. HD design includes oil-resistance and even higher temperature resistance.

Minimum mounting and maintenance effort. With flywheel connections acc. to SAE. Also available for non-standard flywheels. CENTA FH flange bearing is recommended for larger deflection angles of connected cardan shafts.
