Palmer Johnson is an authorized distributor for the CENTA CENTAFLEX-R Couplings with expert support working on new applications down to parts support & troubleshooting your existing coupling.

The CENTAFLEX-R series are torsionally soft and highly flexible couplings with progressive characteristics, offering low stiffness at low torque and progressively increased moderate stiffness at higher torque. This extremely robust, fail-safe design features rubber-in-compression rollers for high reliability and bonding-free performance. With smooth operation and reliable transmission under many different applications, the CENTAFLEX-R is a dependable coupling design. Available in oil-resistant and high-temperature resistant variations, the CENTAFLEX-R series offers adaptable and flexible performance.

Suited for a variety of shaft connections, standard and non-standard flywheels, the CENTAFLEX-R series is ideal for close-coupled marine diesel drives for “gear chatter-free” operation. CENTAFLEX -R series is also well suited for industrial and off-highway applications for engine driven high inertia gearboxes and pump drives where a low-load/low-stiffness, high-load/high-stiffness progressive torsional coupling is desirable.

Whether you are wanting to explore a CENTAFLEX-R Coupling for your next application or are needing parts support for your existing coupling; we've got you covered. Contact the CENTA coupling & drive shaft experts today!
