The PROPFLEX coupling is a flexible displacement coupling for different application areas. Torque transmission with simultaneous compensation of displacement occurs through rubber bushes. Through these specially developed rubber bushes, noise-reducing properties are achieved that are clearly superior to those of conventional displacement couplings. Thus the PROPLEX coupling satisfies the most rigorous comfort requirements by isolating the vibrations of the transmission from the ship structure. The PROPFLEX portfolio consists of three different versions, the displacement coupling PROPFLEX N and the propeller shaft couplings PROPFLEX S and PROPFLEX T.
The PROPFLEX N is characterized by outstanding displacement capacities with simultaneous isolation of vibration; the PROPFLEX S supplements these product strengths with integrated thrust absorption for transmission of the propeller thrust. The PROPFLEX coupling in combination with elastic mounts is an elementary component in the overall acoustic concept.
* Noise isolation of the drive train for rigorous comfort requirements
* Compensation of radial, axial, and angular displacements guarantees the protection of connected aggregates and thus the availability of the drive
* Modular structure and variable install lengths for maximum solution flexibility
* Total acoustic concepts with VULKAN transmission and engine mounts and PROPFLEX couplings for the most rigorous comfort requirements
