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. In addition, a modular flywheel mass is available which can be attached after the installation of the coupling to achieve the highest comfort requirements.


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.
