ELBO couplings are flexible pin-type couplings and designed to compensate for axial, radial and angular shaft

Essential features and advantages of the ELBO coupling:

  • Modular construction
  • Torque transmission up to 1,300 kNm
  • Standard shaft-hub connection designed as a keyway connection. Standard shaft-hub connection designed as a keyway connection. Alternative types of connection like internally or externally clamping shrink disk connections available on request
  • Compensation of axial, radial and angular offsets
  • Coupling elements available in different stiffnesses
  • Ease of assembly thanks to the plug-in type design
  • Low axial restorative forces through plain bearing arrangement
  • Fail-safe
  • Maintenance-free
  • Suited for ambient temperatures from -40°C to +80°C
  • Typical applications: Cableways, mills, crushers, large scale compressors

Product details

elbo detailsGeneral technical description

ELBO-couplings provide for a positive torque and speed transmission and dampen torque shocks and vibrations. The input and output sides of the coupling are of identical design. Being mounted on either side, a maximum number of coupling elements can be accommodated on the flange on even the smallest of diameters. The specific design of the coupling elements which are vulcanized onto the inner sleeve and the outer ring allows for axial length compensation with very low restorative forces. These maintenance-friendly coupling elements are replaceable without moving the coupled machine components.

The ELBO series covers a torque range from 200,000 to 1,300,000 Nm. REICH-KUPPLUNGEN will however also be pleased to develop for special types an optimal solution in line with the principle ‚D2C - Designed to Customer‘.

D2C – Designed to Customer
