Correspondingly the couplings are available in varying sizes ranging from mm diameter to mm diameter.

Bibby Turboflex

Bibby couplings can be used for applications with powers varying gsar as low as 1 h. The specially designed spring is wound up through the grooves forming a series of resilient bridges throughout the periphery of the coupling.

The selection of the Bibby coupling is mainly based on the torque being transmitted by the coupling. High Performance Disc Couplings. See the selection chart below for the selection of corresponding coupling based on cataloogue power.

Bibby couplings are capable of taking axial and radial misalignments to a very small extent only. Eliminate the problems associated with slow reaction which give a wide release torque variation, or slip clutches which may rapidly overheat.


The grooves are tapered up at the edges see photo in order to provide extra flexible spans to the spring at normal loads and tends to support the spring at the sides whenever overloading occurs.

Solutions for the Power Generation Market. Let us now look at the constructional features of the coupling. The unsupported length tends to vary with the loads producing a varying stiffness for the coupling based on the loading.

A maintenance team contacted Bibby Turboflex directly since they were very pleased with the original coupling’s long-lasting performance and didn’t want to change the design or manufacturer. Sincewith the introduction of the resilient grid coupling, Bibby Turboflex has been recognized as a global leader in the design and manufacture of highly-engineered industrial couplings.

James Bibby inthis coupling is still one of the most sought after flexible couplings for heavy shock applications. Selection procedure for Bibby Couplings: Designed to Couplin the Pay load. Each coupling has a characteristic value for the torque transmitted by it to the revolutions per minute of the caralogue.

Bibby develops reliable and safe power transmission solutions that eliminate downtime and optimize efficiency. This action tends to produce a detuning action altering the torsional vibration frequency of the system that prevents the build-up of resonance.


The chart containing the factors to be considered is given below based on the application and driving machinery. This chart is an indicative for the selection of the Bibby coupling. The stiffness of the spring depends on its unsupported length of each of its flexible span. It is necessary for the user to ensure that both axial and radial misalignments are kept to the minimum possible.

Bibby Turboflex is recognized around the world for advanced industrial couplings and torque limiting technologies Sincewith the introduction of the resilient grid coupling, Bibby Turboflex has been recognized as cwtalogue global leader in the design and manufacture of highly-engineered industrial couplings.

In order to account for contingencies like shocks, sudden stops, stalling, etc. Select Language English Contact. Named after its Inventor Dr.

Products High Performance Disc Couplings. Based on previous successful collaborations, the pump OEM contacted Bibby Turboflex for its extensive coupling engineering expertise, quality manufacturing and reasonable lead times.
