The new CENTAX-KN flexible coupling for diesel hydraulic drives made its first UK appearance at Plantworx this year.
Featuring a new toothed design, the torsional CENTAX-KN consists of a lasered adapter plate for the flywheel connection and a high tensile steel hub. The rubber element is vulcanised to the plate, providing the strength and flexibility essential to overcome drive misalignment and remove vibration.

There is also an innovative three part aluminium clamping system which fits directly onto the shaft for ease of blind assembly. This allows for parallel drive assembly and is compatible with flange sizes up to SAE 14.
The CENTAX-KN can be easily adapted for a wide range of flywheel and hub connections, giving designers, engineers and plant operators maximum drive flexibility. Applications include hydrostatic drives, plant and equipment and sealed hydraulic pump drives.
