Product information

Type Uniflex 16: with cylindrical bore and clamping hub for shaft with diameter of 30-35-40 mm with 4" and 5" connection for Hurth, Velvet, TD, ZF, PRM and other makes.

Exact alignment and  concentric installation of a propeller shaft in a boat is not easy and often not even possible. Vetus flexible couplings of the Uniflex type solve these problems. Uniflex couplings have extra features that permit a misalignment of 2 degrees, so that they will centre the shaft to the gearbox, resulting in a an ideal flexible coupling for a propeller shaft with a self aligning bearing and an engine on flexible supports. If the propeller shaft is connected to the engine at an angle of 2 degrees, then the maximum admissible number of revolutions is 1500 rpm on the saft. These couplings are axially and radially secured against shearing off.
