Description

Areas of Application
Free standing installations especially flexibly mounted installations for main propulsion, auxiliary and power generation.

The VULKARDAN F is the successor of the well-established VULKARDAN E and complements the VULKAN highly flexible couplings product portfolio below the RATO R torque range. In comparison to similar couplings the VULKARDAN F is characterized by a very compact design, resulting in a weight reduction and a very short installed length. Furthermore, the optimized design of the element increases the heat dissipation considerably which results in high power loss. Accordingly VULKARDAN F couplings can also be installed in applications with
high alternating torques, and temperature induced ageing processes are efficiently reduced. The VULKARDAN F is especially suitable for flexibly mounted drive systems and makes it possible to compensate radial, axial and angular offsets by using a very
soft element in combination with a high-performance membrane. The VULKARDAN F is available in four rubber qualities, enabling a perfect torsional tuning of the drive train.

Benefits
Compact and short-build design for smallest possible space requirements and easy handling.
Low weight for the protection of engine bearings and reduction of service costs.
Effective vibration protection and high displacement capacity guarantee the protection of connected machinery and therefore the highest system availability.
Optional flywheel mass used for a subsequent fine tuning and achievement of the highest possible comfort.
Due to the high power loss suitable for all propulsion and generator applications.
