Type A flexible coupling
TheType A flexible shaft coupling is designed to protect critical drive train components including shafts, gears, gaskets and bearings. The one piece, nylon ply reinforced moulded rubber element provides for solutions to angular, parallel and inflow misalignment issues. Its simplicity in design and installation reduces operating costs by allowing the rubber element to be installed on misaligned shafts, while also protecting process equipment by damping shock loads and shaft-to-shaft vibrations.
