A flexible coupling reduces noise and vibration on board and is damping torsion vibration. Blokflex flexible couplings provide an elastic connection of the propeller shaft to the gearbox output flange. They are manufactured to high standards of quality and have a long life span.
The couplings can deal with loads from different directions (radial and/or axial), making it possible to deal with the thrust force of the propeller.
The aluminium housing of type 115-4 en 150-4 is machined to fit directly to the gearbox output flange. Starting with type 160-6 and bigger, a separate steel adaptor flange is supplied, fit to the gearbox output flange. The adaptor flange is available for amongst others ZF/Hurth, Velvet, PRM and Paragon gearboxes.
A version with self centering clamp kit is available as well.
BNF flexible couplings are:
- Suitable to deal with propeller thrust
- Fail safe designed
- Grease and oil proof
- Easy to install
- Available with self centering clamp kit
