For flexibly and rigidly mounted diesel main propulsion and auxiliary drives in the low power range.

The MEGIFLEX B is a versatile, highly flexible coupling. With its modular design in combination with a compression-loaded element, the MEGIFLEX B complements the VULKAN product portfolio encompassing the torque range of small VULKARDAN E and VULASTIK L couplings. Due to its torsionally soft, shock-absorbing behaviour and high radial, axial and angular displacement capabilities the rubber element can meet a highly diverse range of requirements. Typical applications are in main propulsion; in particular with small pods, or auxiliary drives such as PTO/PTI with connected power units. The MEGIFLEX B is available in 15 sizes, each with 2 rubber stiffness classes, which can be either radially assembled or plugged in axially depending on the series. In addition to the compact design, the double cardanic MEGIFLEX B series is versatile as a highly displacing and torsionally flexible drive shaft for a broad range of Installation situations. The MEGIFLEX B is designed with an inbuilt fail-safe device.


Through its modular design; it can endure high radial, axial and angular displacements and as a torsionally flexible cardan shaft, the MEGIFLEX B can be used in various applications for the highest solution flexibility.
Effective vibration damping and a high displacement capacity guarantee the protection of connected machinery and thus a high availability of the drive system
Easy installation as elements either assembled axial bolted or plugged in
Noise dampening for highest comfort Standards
