Versatile Designs Cohpling cover designs are available in the popular sizes. Protection Against Shaft Misalignment The grid is free to rock, pivot and float within the hub teeth.
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 offers simpler initial installation than gear couplings. Tapered grids are accessible through the quickly removable cover. 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.
Consequently, the coupling is capable of tuning the drive system. Torsional flexibility is the ability steeelflex Falk Steelflex couplings to torsionally deflect when subjected to normal shock or vibratory loads, providing flexible accommodation to changing load conditions. 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.
Steelflex couplings and component xoupling, in popular sizes and couplng, 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. When coupling-connected equipment must be moved, the job takes longer and costs a lot more.
Fill out the below form, and one of our techs will be in touch ASAP. For more information, contact your Rexnord distributor. Under angular misalignment, the gridgroove design permits a rocking and sliding action of the steeelflex and hubs without any loss of power through the resilient grid.
It absorbs impact energy by spreading it over an increment of time.
You might get by without torsional flexibility, but why take a chance on damaging expensive connected equipment? The grid is free to rock, pivot and float within the hub teeth. It resists the separation of the oil and thickening agent that occurs in typical greases.

The long span between the points of contact remains free to flex under load variations. Tapered grids, made of high strength alloy steel, are quenched and tempered to spring hardness. Now you can install the coupling and lubricate it with Falk Long Term Grease LTG and forget periodic, routine maintenance for five years.
Two cover designs are available in the popular sizes. End float can also be limited to any required amount by the use of limited end float kits. Axial End float for both driving and driven members is permitted because the grid slides freely in the grooves.

End float for both driving and driven members is permitted because the grid slides freely in the grooves. Learn more about the types of misalignment in couplings. Or for the representative nearest you, see the Topics area.
The effect is a dramatic increase in rating, providing reserve strength for longer life or allowing a smaller size coupling to be selected. Normal Load 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.
VIBI – REXNORD FALK STEELFLEX couplings
Light Load The grid bears near the outer edges of the hub teeth. The grid is the wearing member of a Steelflex coupling and it is a fraction of the complete coupling cost.
Shock Stewlflex The coupling is flexible within its rated capacity. 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. Standard spacer, piloted, high speed, brakewheel or disc, and controlled torque designs are also available. 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.
Longer Life Tapered grids, made of high strength alloy steel, are quenched and tempered to spring hardness.
The initial use of Falk LTG coupling grease will eliminate routine lubrication cycles while still providing the necessary lubrication to the tapered grid.
