Drive Train Mining Application

Stromag Periflex® tyre couplings accommodate misalignment and minimise maintenance

In many industrial environments the transmission of power through the drive train requires couplings that are able to carry high torque while also accommodating misalignment and vibration. Stromag’s range of Periflex® Shaft Couplings use a highly flexible, rubber-fabric ‘tyre’ element to transmit up to 15,000 Nm of torque, while compensating for radial, axial and angular misalignment. Further, wear is limited to the rubber element to minimise the burden of maintenance.
