Cone Ring couplings
Cone Ring couplings offer vastly improved torsional flexibility with a limited freedom of axial movement because of their series of rubber ‘conical section’ rings.
Types 611, 613, are available with bore sizes up to 170mm diameter and a basic rated torque up to 23500 Nm. They accommodate all types of shaft misalignment met in normal operation, being a development of the old pin and bush design that it resembles in its simplicity and ease of dismantling.
It differs fundamentally in the way its resilient material behaves by substituting the parallel bush with a series of rubber ‘conical section’ rings.This provides greatly improved torsional flexibility together with a limited freedom of axial movement of one connected shaft relative to the other.
Flexible Cone Ring couplings are also available with taper bushes type 613 with bore sizes up to 125mm diameter, providing ease of assembly and dismantling together with flexibility to change shaft sizes by changing only the taper bushes.
