PROPELLER SHAFT COUPLINGS
These parts are manufactured by VULKAN COUPLINGS, Germany pioneers in marine drive technology.
Furtermore, VULKAN components are used in powerplant facilities or in industrial applications as well.
VULKAN production program includes following types, most available from the manufacturing site in Germany but some common ones are also available from our warehouse in Moschato:
The PROPFLEX coupling is a flexible displacement coupling for different application areas. Torque transmission with simultaneous compensation of displacement occurs through rubber bushes. Through these especially developed rubber bushes, noise-reducing properties are achieved that are clearly superior to those of conventional displacement couplings. Thus, the PROPLEX coupling satisfies the most rigorous comfort requirements by isolating the vibrations of the transmission from the ship structure. The PROPFLEX portfolio consists of three different versions: the displacement coupling PROPFLEX N and the propeller shaft couplings PROPFLEX S and PROPFLEX T. The PROPFLEX N is characterized by outstanding displacement capacities and simultaneous isolation of vibration. The PROPFLEX coupling, in combination with elastic mounts, is an elementary component of the overall acoustic concept.
- Noise isolation of the drive train for rigorous comfort requirements
- Compensation of radial, axial, and angular displacements guarantees protection of connected aggregates and thus the availability of the drive.
- Modular structure and variable install lengths for maximum solution flexibility
- Total acoustic concepts with Vulkan transmission and engine mounts and PROPFLEX couplings for the most rigorous comfort requirements
