Large engine couplings

  • 09-Jul-2008 03:30 EDT


Ringfeder offers seven additional Arcusaflex flywheel coupling sizes by Reich Kupplungen for larger engine applications, bringing the total available to 21 sizes, with torque ranges from 147.5 to 81,132 lb·ft (200 to 110,000 N·m). The flexible flywheel couplings are suitable for a torsionally soft connection between an internal-combustion engine and the components of generators, compressors, and pumps. A rubber disk element is vulcanized to either a bolt-on sleeve or taper bushing hubs, providing torsional flexibility and shock absorption in engine work environments with high angular, axial, and/or parallel misalignments. The combination is suitable for up to 140,000 lb·ft (190,000 N·m) of torque and speeds up to 4200 rpm. All couplings are available in standard rubber as well as a silicone mixture to provide heat resistance in high-temperature applications; special configurations are available.
