Maintenance-free rotational coupling for large mills and processing plants

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Centa Transmissions has unveiled a high performance, low maintenance shaft-to-shaft flexible coupling designed for heavy duty operation in large industrial mills, processing plant and mining machinery.

The CENTAFLEX-BL is said to be a versatile, maintenance-free and robust rubber roller bearing design, which makes it more cost-effective to install and operate than the steel gear coupling it is designed to replace.

Suitable as a maintenance replacement product or as a component for OEMs, CENTAFLEX-BL provides consistent and shock-resistant transmission of torque with a small outer diameter. Its modular design means that the rollers are quick and easy to replace.

Considering its dimensions and cost, the CENTAFLEX-BL is suitable for heavy duty plant applications where low running costs, reliability and high efficiency are mandatory. As well as overcoming drive misalignment, eliminating the vibration that causes noise and premature wear-and-tear, the CF-BL damps any impacts and sudden overloads, to protect the drive.

The coupling is available in four sizes, having a torque range of 70 to 176kNm. No lubrication or maintenance is required, saving money over a geared coupling that needs regular lubrication. It is resistant to corrosive materials and its fail-safe design ensures that there are no sudden and damaging plant seizures.It is also shock-proof, which means that stress levels on plant machinery and drive components are reduced.
