CENTAFLEX-KE SERIES Flexible Couplings for DIESEL hydraulic pump drives

The CENTAFLEX-KE is a single piece, compactly dimensioned flexible coupling with high torsional stiffness and is suitable for applications with radial misalignment.


The flexible element made of high quality glass fibre reinforced plastic with elastic rubber-coated bushes on the outer diameter. Its highly robust and compact design makes it easy to fit and its high torsional stiffness protects shafts and bearings from mechanical loading. At the same time very durable and economical, oil resistant and is suitable for high ambient temperatures.

It can be blind assembled for ease of mounting, comes ready to assemble, with flywheel connections acc. to SAE. It is also available for non-standard flywheels.
