HIGHLY FLEXIBLE 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 VULKAN VULASTIK L highly flexible coupling is an axial pluggable highly flexible coupling developed for a variety of different applications. Four rubber qualities and silicone couplings are available in order to tune the coupling to the various system requirements. VULKAN VULASTIK L highly flexible couplings are available with one elastic element in standard design or as dual execution with two parallel elements. The main parts of the VULASTIK L highly flexible coupling are the hub and a flanged casing. Between these, the disc-shaped element is arranged. This disc element is vulcanized at its inner radius; the outer radius is connected to the flanged casing by a plug-in toothing. This toothing provides the axial plug-in feature and compensation for shaft displacements.
- Vulkan highly flexible couplings with maximum flexibility are provided by different torsional coupling designs for installation in bell-type housings or free-standing installations, designed with a single or dual arrangement of natural rubber or silicone.
- There is an extremely compact design for more efficient engines with high power density. This spline enables axial engagement with ease of assembly.
- Integrated supporting rings protect against slipping through or developing cracks in the gearing teeth.
