Ameridrives Americardan driveshafts are a great option when higher operating angles are necessary. A variety of arrangements are available to meet your application’s torque, speed, length, and angular requirements.
Torque range: 86 to 1,891,846 lb-ft (117 to 2,565,000 Nm)
Typical applications: Paper mills, steel mills, levellers, marine propulsion, pumps
Torsiflex-i Disc Coupling
Ameridrives Torsiflex-i disc couplings are designed specifically for process pumps, and can also be used in general industrial applications. Their drop-in spacer design allows for easy installation without moving the hubs. A zinc phosphate coating is standard, with other materials and coatings also available. The Torsiflex-i can be paired with Torsi-Lock hubs for an easy, mechanical interference fit.
Torque range: 199 to 88,510 lb-ft (269 to 120,000 Nm)
Typical applications: Pumps, compressors, fans, food processing machinery, printing presses
Ameriflex Diaphragm Coupling
Ameridrives Ameriflex diaphragm couplings offer a high torque capacity with relatively small diameter and light weight. These couplings are maintenance-free and are designed for infinite life when installed and aligned properly.
Torque range: 2,500 to 500,000 lb-ft (3,390 to 677,910 Nm)
Typical applications: Pumps, compressors, fans, conveyors, generators
Amerigear Gear Coupling
Ameridrives Amerigear gear couplings use a special fully-crowned tooth with offers maximum torque capacity with minimum size. Gear couplings allow for parallel, angular, and axial misalignment.
Torque range: 158 to 86,083 lb-ft (214 to 116,712 Nm)
Typical applications: Pumps, conveyors, compressors, cranes, presses, steel mills
