Quick-Flex elastomeric couplings, manufactured by QM Bearings, offer torque ratings that, for most shaft sizes, exceed those of gear couplings. These lubrication-free, value-priced couplings have low maintenance costs and are easy to install. The only replacement part to stock is a urethane insert, which can be changed quickly and without moving the coupling hubs. The couplings are available in close-coupled, single-ended spacer and double-ended spacer styles for shaft sizes from 3/8 in. to 11-1/4 in. They handle up to 20,000 hp.
