SAMIFLEX Couplings and Inserts

    A maintenance-free solution that reduces expensive downtime. Samiflex couplings are designed for easy inspection and replacement. You can quickly remove and replace the insert without moving the driving or driven equipment.

    Assembly and Replacement are As Easy as One, Two, and Three.

    1. Align hubs (A) and (B) on the shafts.

    2. Insert the elastic insert (C) into the parallel slots between hubs (A & B).

    3. Slide a polyamide or steel retaining ring (item D) over the insert, securing the insert and ring between the hubs. Retaining rings are provided with locking screws as standard.

      Once the hubs (A and B) have been installed and aligned on the shafts, the coupling hubs will not have to be moved again during the life of the equipment. The insert is quickly and easily removed and replaced without the need to undo screws, bolts, or other fasteners (no special tools required) by simply sliding the retaining ring (D).

    • Maintenance Free - No lubrication is required over the life of the insert.
    • You can rotate the hubs independently during a motor test.
    • No metal-to-metal contact.
    • Large bore to torque capacity.
    • Vertical operation is possible with standard coupling.
    • Retaining rings are provided with locking screws as standard.
    • The standard insert can handle an extensive temperature range from -40 to 80°C (-40 to 180°F).
    • High-temperature inserts are available up to 150°C (300°F).
    • Polyurethane insert is very resistant to chemical attack.
    • Polyurethane insert hardness options are available to optimize torque capacity and damping.

    Samiflex Elastomeric Inserts

    The insert is manufactured using a unique polyurethane blend in three compounds and three hardness ratings, allowing the insert to meet or exceed your application requirements.  

    The standard (Yellow) insert has a hardness rating of 95 Shore A. 

    High-performance inserts type HD (brown) and HDT (red) enable torque ratings to be increased by 40%.
