SKF Flex Couplings are designed to accommodate misalignment and shock loads anddampen vibration levels. These easy to install,virtually maintenance-free couplings are availablewith either a machined-to-size or tapered bore.Couplings with a tapered bore can be Face(F) mounted or Hub (H) mounted. The more versatile Reversible (R) design can be eitherface or hub mounted depending on the application.These couplings are also availablewith a tapered bushing.SKF Flex Couplings consist of 2 flangesand 1 tyre. The flanges are phosphate coated for improved corrosion resistance.The addition of a standard sized spacer flange can be used to accommodate applicationswhere it is advantageous to move either shaft axially without disturbing either driving or driven machines.SKF Flex tyres are available in naturalrubber compounds for applications ranging from -50 to +50 °C. Chloroprene rubber compounds should be used in applicationswhere exposure to greases and oils are likely.These compounds can accommodate temperatures ranging from -15 to +70 °C. Thechloroprene tyres should be used where fire-resistance and anti-static (F.R.A.S.) properties are required.
