Power transmission couplings last up to 30 times longer
The Sure-Flex brand of elastomeric couplings is a best seller in the US and for very good reason. It provides many performance advantages over other power transmission couplings of this type. Now Sure-Flex is available from Huco Dynatork whose distribution channels can assure its ex-stock supply throughout Europe.
Sure-Flex elastomeric couplings are the ideal choice where low cost, high flexibility and vibration dampening are primary concerns. Quick and easy installation is assured as the design has no bolts, gaskets, covers or seals; no special tools are required. Alignment is simply checked with a straight edge placed against the outside of the precision-machine flanges. Characterised by their clean, dependable and quiet performance, these products need neither lubrication nor maintenance as the components are wear-free and the design is immune from the ingress of abrasive dirt and moisture.
Sure-Flex couplings use a synthetic rubber or Hytrel thermoplastic flex element to transmit torque - up to 8.2kNm - and to accommodate shaft misalignment. Indeed they have exceptional torsional flexibility and their four-way flexing action absorbs virtually all types of shock, vibration, misalignment and end float.
'Fatigue test to failure' results confirm that the Sure-Flex polymeric flex elements last twice as long as their nearest competitive coupling and up to 30 times longer than the remaining competitive models. As a result these couplings are proving extremely popular in all manner of rotating machinery across a wide spectrum of industry.
Typically Sure-Flex couplings are found in systems involving pumps, fans, blowers, compressors, mixers, electric motors and conveyors. Flex elements are available in a choice of four materials or compounds and in various shape configurations to suit the application. Spacer, bushed hub and clamping hub designs complete the range, the most popular sizes of which are available from stock.
