ELPEX-B Rubber Tire Coupling

Please enter your complete MLFB number here
(E.g. 2LC0170-4AB11-0AA0)

Technical information

  • 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)
  • The rubber tire can be replaced easily without the need to move the coupled machines
  • Easy mounting on the shafts is possible with taper bushes


Made in Germany, worldwide in use

  • Mining and Cement: crushers
  • Steel Production: shears, straightening machines, reversing rolling mills, pilger rolling mills
  • Power Generation: air condensers

  • Pulp and Paper: wastewater purification plants
  • Food and beverage: lauter tuns, reactors, agitators
  • Sugar: diffusers, sugar cane mills


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.
