BoWex-ELASTIC® HEG highly flexible flange couplings

The flange coupling BoWex ELASTIC HEG is a highly flexible cardan shaft connection coupling for I. C.-engines.

This type has a maintenance-free plain bearing to accept the radial loads generated by the cardan shaft.

Moreover, there is a friction disk inside the coupling that is axially prestressed by the elastomer part. By permanent friction the flange coupling has excellent damping properties reducing the high alternating load in the coupling considerably that is generated during the starting process and when running through the resonance range.

The cardan shaft connection is available for all common types (type HEG2). A metric flange connection for type HEG (type HEG1) is available, too. 

  • Highly flexible cardan shaft connection coupling
  • High torsional flexibility
  • Additional friction damper for excellent damping properties
  • Radial plain bearing in a maintenance-free design
  • Cardan shaft connection for common types
  • Elastomer parts available in the hardness T40, T50 and T65 ShA
  • Max. torque 7,500 Nm
  • Max. circumferential speed vmax=47m/s

For drives subject to severe torsional vibrations for flexible torque transmission in the combination of a diesel engine with splitterbox, generator, compressor, feed pump or high-pressure pump, etc.:

The BoWex-ELASTIC flange coupling consists of a highly flexible, circular rubber element made of natural rubber stressed for torque-to-bore ratio. The internal axial plug-in hub component with the external spline corresponds to the BoWex basic type. The BoWex-ELASTIC is available in various kinds of elastomer hardness with mounting flanges on the engine side acc. to SAE J620 and with special dimensions for a power up to 5,000 kW.

  • Various kinds of Shore hardness
  • Torsional vibration analyis
  • Supercritical selection
  • Temperature resistance (enabling higher temperatures via EPDM)
