SAMIFLEX ELASTIC COUPLING
Delivery times around the world: 7/8 days
Assembly and disassembly of the elastic insert without having to displace the motor or the unit being driven. This advantage permits the inspection of the insert at any time without a lengthy shut-down. Simply displace (move to one side) the ring, remove the insert, inspect and if necessary replace with a new one. All this takes a few minutes.
The two hubs works independently as the coupling transmits torque. This concept allows free-wheeling of the motor or driving unit in the system by simply moving the ring and removing the insert. This is specially helpful when the driving unit is a combustion engine and it becomes necessary to repair or test the engine without any load. As the hubs are independent of each other, if the insert ruptures or breaks, there is no metal to metal contact creating any spark thus enhancing the explosion proof roperties of the coupling.
The polyurethane insert is a key part of the coupling and is made of a very special elastomer compound. Its estimated average lifetime is 25,000 hours work under normal conditions.
The coupling is easily aligned without expensive tools or measuring devices (see our installation instructions).
