H-CE couplings offer the lowest possible overhung moments and additional shrouding of the flexible elements and bolts. This arrangement produces a high-integrity coupling suited for most medium-speed and high-speed compressor drives.
The factory assembled H-CE hub/flex units are designed to accommodate typical machine shaft sizes for turbo compressor applications. The separate spacer on the H-CE can be varied to provide the appropriate distance between shaft ends and the required torsional stiffness to suit individual applications. On some applications, the H-CE hub assembly on a compressor or gearbox input shaft is combined with the flanged H-FE arrangement for a turbine driver.
