ELPEX-B Rubber Tire Coupling
- Highly flexible, backlash-free tire coupling
- Nominal torque range from TKN = 24 Nm up to 14,500 Nm with 15 sizes
- Temperature range: from –50 °C to +50 °C for natural rubber materials, from
–15 °C to +70 °C for chloroprene rubber
Flexible and adaptable
Highly flexible ELPEX-B® couplings transmit torques without circumferential backlash in machines with non-uniform torque characteristics. They are resistant to wear and maintenance-free. The hubs of the ELPEX-B couplings are made of high-quality cast iron or steel. The torque is transmitted by a flexible tire reinforced with a cord ply.
Your benefits at a glance
- Compensation of very large shaft misalignments
- Independent of direction of rotation (suitable for reversing operation)

Did you know?
Instead of the standard rubber tire, a chloroprene rubber tire is available. This option is labeled FRAS, i.e. fire-resistant and anti static.
