In this type of application, we would normally use the coupling with brake disc or brake drum. The UNEFLEX elastic coupling has a very good performance, as it is very flexible and it can absorb shocks, fast stops and strong misalignments. In addition, for those cases in which there might be a brake in the tyre, it is possible to apply safety mortgages in the coupling.
Safety mortgages in flexible couplings
The mortgages are a safety element that may be applied in the highly flexible coupling, in order to prevent the shipment from falling. The function of the mortgages consists on blocking the material not to fall down, as a consequence, the shipment remains suspended during a short period of time, so as to make the proper arrangements, repairs and maintenance of the coupling. The replacement should be made as soon as possible, in order to avoid wear of the safety mortgages.
Elastic rubber tyre coupling applied to a ventilated brake disc
It is also possible to use the coupling with ventilated disc, by this way we are able to avoid warming the disc too much increasing the life cycle of the product and the components.
