This has the effect of shifting the critical rotational speeds into speed ranges higher than those of the engine. The drive is thus sub-critical and is free from such critical rotational speeds which could produce dangerous torsional vibrations over the whole speed range of the engine.
The coupling is usually built into a housing between the diesel engine and the hydraulic pump or power distribution gearbox. Naturally, fairly high temperatures predominate inside this housing. Because of its extremely high thermal stability, the CENTAFLEX-H is the one best suited for this purpose, even with a totally enclosed housing. In addition it is oil-resistant
