The specially designed spring is wound up through the grooves forming a series of resilient bridges throughout the periphery of bibgy coupling. Bibby Turboflex is recognized around the world for advanced industrial couplings and couppling limiting 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.

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

Bibby couplings are capable of taking axial and radial misalignments to a very small extent only. The chart containing the factors to be considered is given below based on the application and driving machinery. Solutions for the Power Generation Market.


Bibby develops reliable and safe power transmission solutions that eliminate downtime and optimize efficiency. Named after its Inventor Dr. James Bibby inthis coupling is still one of the most sought bibbj flexible couplings for heavy shock applications.

Let us now look at the catalogke features of the coupling. Products High Performance Disc Couplings. The unsupported length tends to vary with the loads producing a varying stiffness for the coupling based on the loading.

What are Bibby Couplings?

Designed to Carry the Pay load. 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. It is necessary for the user to ensure that both axial and radial misalignments are kept to the minimum possible.

See the selection chart below for the selection of corresponding coupling based on the power. This chart is an indicative for the selection of the Bibby coupling.

Disc Coupling, Industrial Couplings, Torque Limiter | Bibby Turboflex

The selection of the Bibby coupling is bibbyy based on the torque being transmitted by the coupling. 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.


The stiffness of the spring depends on its unsupported length of each of its flexible span. Selection procedure for Bibby Couplings: Correspondingly the couplings are available in varying sizes ranging from mm diameter to mm diameter. 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. Eliminate the problems associated with slow reaction which give a wide release torque variation, or slip clutches which may rapidly overheat.

Bibby couplings can be used for applications with powers varying from as low as 1 h. This action tends to produce a detuning action altering the torsional vibration frequency of the system that prevents the build-up of resonance.

Each coupling has a characteristic value for the cataloguue transmitted by it to the revolutions per minute of the coupling. In order to account for contingencies like shocks, sudden stops, stalling, etc. Select Language English Contact.
