Flexible shaft couplings for high temperature applications

By: Steven Elliot • OEP Couplings Shaft couplings face many hurdles: Excessive misalignment, vibration, and exposure to chemicals and dirt can all lead to premature coupling failure. One particularly pernicious foe is elevated ambient temperature, which de-rates and degrades most types of flexible couplings. Engineers often resort to rigid couplings, instead of flexible, in high-temp [Read More]
