Couplings for high speed diesel engines
CENTA presents couplings for high speed diesel engines
By launching the new CENTAX-NL series CENTA now offers a coupling for a torque range of 1.1 to 25 kNm. It is specifically designed for use in high speed diesel engines fitted with flexible engine mounts. CENTA’s new coupling system is a technically and commercially advantageous solution for luxury yachts, ferry boats and marine vessels.
For three decades CENTA has been manufacturing high-quality couplings. Product series that have continuously been enhanced and adjusted to the user's specific requirements are CENTA’s key to success. The CENTAX-NL product line has been developed in a manner analogous to CENTA-N. It is especially suitable for high speed diesel engines which are mounted separately from the marine gear and placed on soft flexible mounts. In particular highly flexibly mounted diesel engines in the power range up to 2,000 kW will benefit from this high-performance, low-cost coupling solution.
CENTAX-NL couplings fit all SAE flywheels. And the driven hubs are tailor-made to fit different gear input shafts. The CENTAX-NL series provides compensation for misalignment in axial and angular direction and CENTAX rubber elements are torsionally flexible and absorb radial misalignment. The secondary inertia of the coupling shifts critical resoncances to low speed ranges.
The new CENTAX couplings will be showcased at SMM, in hall A3, stand A3.142, September 26 – 29, 2006.
