Three-way Flexing Action Handles Shock, Vibration, and Misalignment
The Dodge D-Flex coupling features molded, non-lubricated, interchangeable elastomeric sleeves of EPDM, Neoprene, or Hytrel. Its three-way flexing action accommodates torsional, angular, and parallel misalignment, as well as axial end float.
Type J Coupling
Offered in four sizes, the Type J coupling features die-cast flanges that are bored to size with two setscrews for attachment to the shaft and is available with EPDM or Neoprene sleeves.
Type S Coupling
The Type S coupling features high strength, cast-iron flanges that are bored to size for a clearance fit and balanced to AGMA 9 Standards resulting in smooth operation for pumping applications. With one setscrew over the keyway and the other at 65°, D-Flex S flanges provide optimum shaft attachment. Type S couplings are offered with EPDM, Neoprene, or Hytrel sleeves.
Type B Coupling
Constructed of high-strength cast iron and using QD bushings for shaft attachments, Type B couplings are available for use with EPDM or Neoprene sleeves.
Type SC Coupling
Dynamically balanced to AGMA Class 9 Standards, the Type SC spacer coupling accommodates a wide range of shaft spacing. It features a drop-out center for easy equipment maintenance. Additionally, shaft hubs include hub flats for ease of alignment during installation and are available in either rough stock bore or clearance fit finished bore.
Pump Drive Package
The Dodge D-Flex coupling is very popular in pumping applications due to the five-piece spacer design’s ease of installation and change out. ABB, Baldor Electric, and Dodge can package together the controls, drives, motors, and couplings needed for common pumping applications.
