CENTAX Torsional Couplings

An easy to install, uncompromising design
A coupling specifically designed for diesel-driven compressor or pump drives
A highly flexible, compact design for an easily mounted economical coupling
A coupling for diesel-driven compressor or pump drives should be as uncompromising regarding ease in mounting as it is economical.

The torsionally soft CENTAX coupling is based on a rubber element that features high torsional flexibility and radial movability. The coupling designs can be plugged in axially to ensure maximum ease in mounting. And, the design is also impressive considering its dimensions and cost. The torsional flexibility of the CENTAX-KS dampens torsional vibrations and impacts and compensates for any axial and radial misalignments due to operation. The rubber element for this coupling is available in various designs. Currently, the series covers torques ranging from 400 to 800 Nm.

Rubber Elements: The torsionally and radially soft CENTAX-element offer all necessary misalignment and damping features.
Maintenance free: The combination of steel with highly shock resistant, temperature stabilized special Polyamid makes maintenance unnecessary.
Short Build: short mounting length, easy assembly since it can be plugged in axially
Customized Design: The hubs can be fit to splined shafts absolutely free of movement to eliminate fretting and can be modified in form and length as needed.

Why choose CENTAX Couplings?
A highly flexible, compact design for quick installation

Flexible

Rubber elements are 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. Torsional vibrations and impacts are reliably dampened.

Adaptable

The CENTAX coupling offers many functions to protect your drive from harmful torsional vibrations, to compensate misalignment and to dampen vibrations and noise. Reliable power transmission for your applications with an optimum of features.

Compensates Misalignment

Ensures a reliable compensation of misalignments even with short drive shafts and an efficient damping of vibration and noise

Modular

All standard flywheel connections can be realized with our CENTAXK allowing for adequate design for any application. For efficient and fast customized solutions.

CENTAX-KK
The CENTAX-KK is a two piece connection to the driven units. By use of an additional hub star of CENTAFLEX-K an axial plug-in is achieved. The design thus allows for key connections, conical clamping or the CENTALOC-clamping. The positive locking of the hubstar by an integrated rubber bumper is a further feature. This fix rotation direction coupling becomes free of backlash and is noise reduced during operation.

CENTAX-TT
Compact coupling with high performance density. For heavy duty applications with high speeds.

Design with segmented rubber elements, each consisting of two concentrically arranged precompressed rubber segments, which jointly transmit the torque. Extremely short and high-performing design. Characterised by medium torsional stiffness, especially variable adaption to the torsional system by adjusting the number and the arrangement of the segments. Dampens torsional vibrations and shocks and compensates axial and radial misalignments. Effectively ventilated and with high admissible energy loss.

Mounted with minimum effort, replaceable without movement of the coupled units.
