FLENDER ARPEX All-Steel Coupling


ARPEX all-steel couplings have proved themselves for over 30 years in all fields of engineering where reliable and maintenance-free transmission of torque is required in the case of shaft misalignments. The compact and rugged design ensures a long service life and a high degree of operational reliability.


Examples of application

Type approvals of many Classification Societies are on hand for the use of ARPEX couplings in shipbuilding.

Other examples of application are,

  • Pumps
  • Compressors
  • Ventilators
  • Paper machine drives

 Special designs are used in

  • Wind turbines
  • High-speed generators

Advantages of the product

  • Maintenance-free and wear-resistant
  • Compensation of angular, radial and axial shaft misalignment possible
  • Torsionally rigid and without circumferential backlash
  • Temperature-resistant from -40 °C up to +280 °C
  • Low restoring forces
  • Independent of direction of rotation (reversing operation possible)
  • Nearly vibration-free operation (even at max. permissible speed)
  • Can be used in potentially explosive atmospheres; certified acc. to 94/9/EC (ATEX 95)
