Need help selecting the right coupling? Falk LTG grease was developed specifically for couplings.
REXNORD FALK STEELFLEX couplings
Shock Loads The coupling is flexible within its rated capacity. The grid is the wearing member of a Steelflex coupling and it is a fraction of the complete coupling cost. The grid is free to rock, pivot and float within the hub teeth. Consequently, the coupling is capable of tuning the drive system.
This precision technology was originally used in the production of sophisticated aircraft components. You might get by without torsional flexibility, but why take a chance on damaging expensive connected equipment? Or for the representative nearest you, see the Topics area.
Generous misalignment capacity is provided without producing detrimental bearing side loads created by many elastomer couplings. The function of a coupling is to connect two shafts, plus to protect expensive driving and driven equipment from misalignment, shock loads, vibration and thrust loads. The long span between the points of contact remains free to flex under load variations.
We invite you to learn more about the differences between grid couplings and gear couplings.

Parallel The movement of the grid in the grooves accommodates parallel misalignment and still permits full functioning of the grid-groove action in damping out shock and vibration. Fill out the below form, and one of our techs will be in touch ASAP.
Learn more about the types of misalignment in couplings. Generous misalignment capacity is provided without producing detrimental bearing side loads created by other coupling types.
The coupling is flexible within its rated capacity. Protection Against Shaft Misalignment The grid is free to rock, pivot and float within the hub teeth.

It absorbs impact energy by spreading it over an increment of time. The simplest, most cost-effective alternative to gear couplings. When coupling-connected equipment must be moved, the job takes longer steelfkex costs a lot more. The grid bears near the outer edges of the hub teeth. For more information, contact your Rexnord distributor.
Versatile Designs Two cover designs are available in the popular sizes. Under extreme overloads, the grid bears fully on the hub teeth and transmits full load directly. Couplinb grids are accessible through the quickly removable cover. Get in Touch Got a question about a coupling or gearbox, but don’t know where to start? It is a true shock absorber for rotary motion, relying on the predictable resilience of the steel grid for torsional flexibility. The movement of the grid in the grooves accommodates parallel misalignment and still permits full functioning of the grid-groove action in damping out shock and vibration.
Two cover designs are available in the popular sizes. Torsional flexibility is the ability of Falk Steelflex Couplings to torsionally deflect when subjected to normal, shock or vibratory loads, providing flexible accommodation to changing load conditions.
Tapered grids, made of high strength alloy steel, are quenched and tempered to spring hardness. Plus, low initial coast and a guaranteed five-year, no-maintenance run time- with the use of long-lasting lubricant — assure the lowest lifetime operating coast in the torque range. The initial use of Falk LTG coupling grease will eliminate routine lubrication cycles while still providing the necessary lubrication to the tapered grid. As the load increases, the distance between the contact points on the hub teeth is shortened, but a free span still remains to cushion shock loads.
Steelflex couplings and component parts, in popular sizes and types, are available from Falk distribution center stocks, or from our world, wide distribution network with the largest stock of rough bore, finish straight bore and Taper-lock bushed hubs of any shaft coupling on the market.
Equipment Protection Against Shaft Misalignment The grid is free to rock, pivot and float within the hub teeth. End float can also be limited to any required amount by the use of limited end float kits.
Angular Under angular misalignment, the gridgroove design permits a rocking and sliding action of the grid and hubs without any loss of power through the resilient grid. Protection Against Shock Loads, Vibration and Thrust Loads Torsional flexibility is the ability of Falk Steelflex Couplings to torsionally deflect when subjected to normal, shock or vibratory loads, providing flexible accommodation to changing load conditions. It resists the separation of the oil and thickening agent that occurs in typical greases.
Light Load The grid bears near the outer edges of the hub teeth.
The replace-in-place design of the replacement grids allows them to be dropped in without the need to replace hubs or move and realign shafts and connected equipment as required with gear couplings and many elastomer designs.
