CENTAMAX Series Torsional Couplings

A torsional, highly flexible coupling with high energy loss
Optimized for reduced heat dissipation and effective ventilation
Torque Transmission via a toothed outer ring onto a rubber element
Being a robust coupling with high torsional flexibility, CENTAMAX is the best choice for a safe, resonance-free operation of drives susceptible to torsional vibration. The torsional elasticity of this rugged design shifts critical resonances below operation speed. The drive thus is subject to minor continuous vibratory torques, protecting coupled units.

The CENTAMAX is complimented by efficient ventilation: the high thermal capacity (HTC) design features a superior allowable power loss compared to conventional couplings. This not only ensures a long lifetime, but also the use of smaller cost effective coupling sizes in many cases.

Variable Rubber Element: Available in different degrees of Shore hardness. This enables the torsional flexibility of the couplings to be adapted with utmost variability to the specific application.
Ventilation: All CENTAMAX couplings are effectively ventilated. The HTC-coupling type features a superior allowable power loss compared to conventional couplings.
Fail-Safe: It's better to bend than to break upon extreme load by mal-synchronization or in case of short-circuits the coupling slips through. This protects engine and coupled units from overload.
Customizable Hub: Available as plug-in versions for axial assembly offering a minimum mounting effort. The hubs can be customized to any kind of mounting and application condition.
