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:
Vulkardan G highly flexible genset couplings have been designed specifically for modern auxiliary and generator applications, both for non-SAE-engine drives (sizes 54-62) and for non-SAE-engine drives (size 84). The flexible coupling is developed for freestanding applications, with the possibility to radically change the elastomer without displacing the connected units.
Due to the element design, exceptional values for power loss can be achieved. Additionally, the system is optimized in terms of torsional vibrations using a new elastomer with a corresponding torsional stiffness, CTdyn. Damaging resonances are therefore eliminated from the operating speed range, and effects on the engine governor are prevented.
- Vulkardan G’s highly flexible genset couplings protect the connected generator against axial vibrations for a longer service life of the bearings.
- Excellent transmission ratio with a view on controller stability for adding load or removing it from the coupling.
- Simplified disassembly of the elastomer without displacing the units connected
