The CENTA-FH is a flange housing with internal taper bearing support to protect engine crankshafts from the reaction forces coming from high angle cardan shaft connections. The CENTA-FH compensates high forces resulting from large deflection angles of the connected components. The CENTA-FH transmits reaction forces to the engine housing for the protection of the crankshaft bearings. This robust flanged bearing housing is made of tempered aluminum. With a lightweight, compact design, the CENTA-FH bearing housing is extremely easy to maintain and durable. Features extensive ventilation to reduce the ambient temperature. Available with a speed-controlled centrifugal clutch for soft engagement of connected components, the CENTA-FH provides ideal torsional vibration tuning and minimum mounting and maintenance. The bearing housing is shipped pre-assembled as a unit for SAE standard flywheel connections.

    • Protects the crankshaft from the reaction forces coming from the cardan shaft.
    • Ideal torsional vibration tuning due to combination with different types of highly flexible couplings.
    • High capacity bearings with long term lubrication to achieve extended lifetime, little maintenance.
    • Compact design, light weight due to bearing housing being manufactured from hardened aluminium.
    • Extensive internal ventillation to reduce the ambient temperature around the flexible coupling.
