The FKR is often referred to as a coupling, as its expanding neoprene rubber facing engages the interior diameter of the drum directly. The resulting friction generates significant torque within a small package. This element also offers the advantages of both a flexible and disconnect coupling in applications where there is no speed differential between the driving and driven components during engagement.
