FLENDER ELPEX-B Rubber Tyre Coupling



Highly flexible ELPEX-B couplings transmit torques without circumferential backlash in machines with non-uniform torque characteristic. They are resistant to wear and maintenance-free. The hubs of the ELPEX-B couplings are made of high-quality cast iron or steel. The torque is transmitted by a flexible tyre reinforced with a cord ply.

Examples of Application

ELPEX-B couplings are used in

  • Pump drives
  • Compressor drives
  • Blower drives

Frequently, they are also used in roller table drives.

Advantages of the product

  • Compensation of very large shaft misalignment
  • Independent of direction of rotation (suitable for reversing operation)
  • The rubber tyre can be easily replaced without the need to move the coupled machines
  • Easy mounting on the shafts possible with Taper bushes
  • Nominal torque range between 24 Nm and 14,500 Nm
