CENTA Marine (AM)

CENTAFLEX- AM: CENTAFLEX-AM is a highly flexible coupling, built for connecting marine gear output flanges with a propeller shaft, while isolating the boat hull from noise and vibration. The CENTAFLEX-AM provides backlash-free transmission of torque and propeller thrust using a highly flexible rubber element and thrust bearing. This coupling is specifically designed to reduce noise and vibrations, prolonging the life of surrounding equipment. The flexible coupling damps torsional vibrations and shock loads while offering a high degree of electrical insulation. Designed to compensate moderate axial, radial, and angular misalignments – a common cause of wear – the CENTAFLEX-AM is available in a wide range of standard sizes covering engine power up to several hundred kW. Easily mounted with a clamping hub, the CENTAFLEX-AM is delivered ready to install.
