Propulsion Couplings

HTB Couplings

Clutch Engineering offers Renold HTB couplings, which are designed for bell housing applications and are intrinsically fail-safe for critical applications. These products offer advanced protection against severe shock loads, and no lubrication or adjustment is required. These features result in lower running costs and increased machinery uptimes. These couplings can also handle temperatures up to 400° F (200° C). An additional benefit is that these products can ensure continuous operation of the driveline in the unlikely event of rubber damage. Torque range: 885 to 29,500 lb-ft (1.2 to 40 kNm) Typical applications: Marine propulsion, compressors, generator sets, pumps, rail traction

Periflex Couplings

Available from Clutch Engineering, these Periflex couplings from Stromag are high-quality products that can be used in many industrial systems. Mechanical systems can benefit from these flexible rubber couplings, particularly when internal combustion engines are present. The Periflex VN is flanged to mount directly to standard flywheels. The Periflex CS is specially designed to connect an engine flywheel to a cardan shaft flange. Periflex shaft couplings can be used throughout the full temperature range of -50°C to +80°C. The Stromag Periflex shaft coupling is a highly flexible rubber-fabric coupling that is especially suitable for connecting two shafts in diesel engine and electric drives. Torque range: 18 to 46,466 lb-ft (25 to 63,000 Nm) Typical applications: Steel mills, cranes, conveyors, mining, paper machinery, shipbuilding, construction, PTO's

Rato Coupling

Clutch Engineering offers American Vulkan Rato couplings for marine propulsion systems, auxiliary drives, generators, and other industrial applications. These dependable couplings are compatible with both flexibly and rigidly mounted engines. They are torsionally flexible and can compensate for instances of radial, axial, and angular misalignment. These products are also designed to achieve maximum heat dissipation and a very long life. With advanced design and construction, torque is transmitted by elements loaded in shear. The different torsional stiffnesses and damping factors, available upon request, provide additional options for satisfactorily tuning the torsional vibration behavior of your drive system. Torque range: 5,900 to 5,900,000 lb-ft (8 to 800 kNm) Typical applications: Marine propulsion, auxiliary drives, generators

Vulastik Coupling

Clutch Engineering offers American Vulkan Vulastik L couplings, which are often used in marine propulsion systems, auxiliary drives, and generator applications. Various styles are available which allow the element to be replaced without moving the adjacent machinery. Four different rubber qualities and an additional option for silicone are available, in order to tune the coupling to your system requirements. These couplings benefit from an extremely compact design that is suitable for efficient engines with high power density. Vulastik L couplings are available with one elastic element in standard design or as dual execution with two parallel elements. Torque range: 383 to 38,353 lb-ft (0.52 to 52 kNm) Typical applications: Marine propulsion, auxiliary drives, generators
