One-part design with screw-in flange internally centered

The TSCHAN® TNM KE is a torsionally elastic and puncture-proof claw coupling. It balances out angular, radial and axial shaft misalignments within defined limits. The coupling transfers the torque via pressure loadable, elastic buffers of Perbunan (Pb) which are joined together as an intermediate ring. The elastic intermediate ring can cushion impacts and torsional vibrations; it is oil-tight and electrically conductive. The coupling is usable in every sense of rotation and installation position.

  • Speeds up to nmax = 5,000 rpm


The rotationally resilient coupling of the TSCHAN® TNM series is flexible in all directions and therefore compensates for angular, parallel and axial shaft misalignments of the connected machines. Misalignments can be caused, for example, by inaccurate assembly, heat movements or settling phenomena.

Avoiding Torsional Vibration

By virtue of the rotational resilience of the coupling, dangerous torsional vibrations from the operational range of plant machinery can be transferred to rotational speed ranges in which no negative effects are to be expected. The elastic intermediate rings possess a high material damping capability which makes it possible for the couplings to keep the resonance enhancements within limits when passing through dangerous speed ranges, thereby protecting the coupled machines against damage. The couplings also mitigate torque shocks and cause a vibrating system that has been excited by an impact to come to rest very quickly due to the material damping qualities. The conduction of structure-borne noise is prevented.

Elastomer Materials

Synthetic rubbers are used as base material for the elastic elements of the TNM couplings. As a rule these are electrically conductive and therefore prevent undesirable static charges. For the elastic elements of the TSCHAN® TNM coupling series, there are two different material hardnesses available as standard.

  1. Perbunan (Pb 72) with nitrile rubber (NBR) as the basic material and a hardness of 72 Shore A.
  2. Perbunan (Pb 82) with nitrile rubber (NBR) as the basic material and a hardness of 82 Shore A.

The resilience of the individual elastomer materials is designated by their Shore hardness. From these values an indirect conclusion can be drawn with respect to the torques the coupling is able to transmit and its spring stiffness. For further details, please see the technical data sheet.

Environmental conditions

The employed elastomer materials operate reliably in ambient temperature ranges of –30° to +100°C. Please contact RINGFEDER POWER TRANSMISSION if higher ambient temperatures are involved. The influence of the temperature on the coupling size selection is explained in more detail in the below-mentioned design directives. It is only allowed to operate the coupling in normal industrial air. Aggressive media may attack the coupling components, bolts and elastic elements, and, therefore, present a danger to the operational safety of the coupling. The coupling can be certified in accordance with the European Directive 94/9/EC, also known as ATEX 95. Please contact RINGFEDER POWER TRANSMISSION regarding the declaration of conformity according to 94/9/EC and the effects of aggressive ambient media.
