Couplings by Reliable Manufacturers  


There are many manufacturers that produce reliable couplings available through coupling suppliers YB Components. Here we take a look at just a couple of them, though the whole range can be viewed in the products section of the website.

Desch Couplings: Reliable Flexibility

German couplings manufacturer Desch have a series of exceptionally reliable coupling products. The Habix coupling, for example, is a jaw coupling designed to have a flexible and versatile shaft connection which lets it easily cope with a variety of torque power ratings. The Habix’s design ensures that even with some misalignment between the shafts, you will still get a reliable performance.

The Desch couplings range also includes the Hadeflex and Orpex couplings, which coupling suppliers YB Components also supply all over the UK and the rest of the world. The Hadeflex is a claw coupling that features special flexible elements which easily cope with the likes of impact shocks and rotational vibrations. These elements also help keep the operational noise down for a quieter performance.

The Orpex coupling is also reliably flexible, though differs from the other designs as it is specifically for use with heavy duty applications. This does lessen the flexibility somewhat, but only in comparison to the couplings intended for lighter applications. The Orpex is easy to install as it is has plug-in design and incorporates a useful failsafe feature. The vibration reduction of the Orpex is impressive, while it also boasts excellent resistance to wear and tear thanks to its robust build.

Flender Couplings: Cost-Effective Reliability

New to the range of parts that coupling suppliers YB Components can offer is the extensive range of Flender couplings. They are well known for producing high performing components at a reasonable price.

They have the N-EUPEX and N-EUPEX DK couplings which both perform with excellent torsional flexibility. They are designed to redirect shocks and vibrations away from the more delicate components of the application such as the drive train. The high-quality cast iron N-EUPEX and N-EUPEX DK couplings feature flexible elements made of nitrile butadiene rubber that are available in a variety of hardness values to suit different applications. The two designs differ in that the N-EUPEX DK variety features a double-cardanic design and a split or G-hub which focuses the load to reduce wear and tear on other parts of the application.

The Flender couplings range also includes some compact steel models, such as the ZAPEX ZW gear coupling. This beauty is a double-jointed gear coupling which will compensate for any angular, parallel or axial shaft misalignments. They are compact and thus ideal for applications in confined spaces, while their sturdy build makes them perform reliably even in harsh operating conditions.

These Desch and Flender couplings and more are all available to ship fast and free all over the UK and the rest of the world.
