Radial spoke form membrane coupling with composite spacer
element for long DBSE applications. Computer-controlled, filament wound, matrix
torque tube with stainless steel hubs, hardware and disc packs. Up to 80 percent
lighter than comparable welded metal torque tubes and corrosion-resistant for corrosive atmospheres. The unique spoke form membrane provides a good level of misalignment capacity, but in the rare event of membrane failure, the drive is disconnected, permitting the driven half to safely come to rest, without further damage to the machine.
