Industrial Couplings

Eliminate the problems associated with slow reaction which give a wide release torque variation, or slip clutches which may rapidly overheat. Correspondingly the couplings are available in varying sizes ranging from mm diameter to mm diameter.

The chart containing the factors to be considered is given below based on the application and driving machinery. 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.

Bibby couplings can be used for applications with powers varying from as low as 1 h.


Designed to Carry the Pay load. James Bibby inthis coupling is still one of bibvy most sought after flexible couplings for heavy shock applications. Products High Performance Disc Couplings. High Performance Disc Couplings.

Altra Industrial Motion SA (Pty) Ltd

Solutions for the Power Generation Market. Each coupling has a characteristic value for the torque transmitted by it to the revolutions per minute of the coupling.

This action tends to produce a detuning action altering the torsional vibration frequency of the system that prevents the build-up of resonance. Named after its Inventor Dr. Let us now look at the constructional features of the coupling. Select Language English Contact. 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.

What are Bibby Couplings?

Bibby couplings are capable of taking axial and coupking misalignments to a very small extent cataolgue. The unsupported length tends to vary with the loads producing a varying stiffness for the coupling based on the loading. Based on previous successful collaborations, the pump OEM contacted Bibby Turboflex for its extensive coupling engineering expertise, quality manufacturing and reasonable lead times. The specially designed spring is wound up through the grooves forming a series of resilient bridges throughout the periphery of the coupling.

Selection procedure for Bibby Couplings: In order to account for contingencies like shocks, sudden stops, stalling, etc. See the selection chart below for the selection of corresponding coupling based on the power.


The stiffness of the spring depends on its unsupported length of each of its flexible span. 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.

This chart is an indicative for the selection of the Bibby coupling. Bibby Turboflex is recognized around the world for advanced industrial couplings and torque tear technologies 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.

It is necessary for the user to ensure that both axial coipling radial misalignments are kept to the minimum possible.

The selection of the Bibby coupling is mainly based on the torque being transmitted by the coupling. Bibby develops reliable and safe power transmission solutions that eliminate downtime and optimize efficiency.
