Centaflex DS

Combining the flexibility of a roller coupling with the ruggedness of a claw couplingA Dual Stage (DS) coupling with progressive characteristic for smooth operation and reliable load transmission.

The CENTAFLEX-DS combines good damping characteristics of a torsionally flexible roller coupling under partial load with the robustness of a claw-type coupling under full load. An extremely short and economic design for smooth operation at low idling speeds for applications with a high degree of idling. Effectively ventilated and with high allowable power loss.

Blind assembly for minimum mounting effort. Delivered with fail-safe device and flywheel connections acc. to SAE. Also available for non-standard flywheels.

Extremely low torsional stiffness at low speeds (idling), therefore the resonance falls far below idling speed and torsional vibrations and gear noise is avoided, and a very low idling speed becomes possible

The stiffer, robust, well-proven jaw coupling transmits the torque at higher speeds

Simple, compact, reliable and economical design - no bonded rubber, no rubber in shear, only rubber in compression i.e. ideal working conditions. The rubber is heat resistant and the coupling has internal ventilation for good heat dissipation.
