A compact torsional elastic steel spring coupling for SAE standard connections.

Geislinger SAE Coupling

The Geislinger SAE-Coupling is based on a modular concept. Its enlarged oil volume and renowned fatigue resistant steel springs lead to a long service life. The coupling is available in four different stiffness levels. Resistant to heat and oil, the Geislinger SAE-Coupling is the perfect solution for installations in harsh environments, such as bell or bearing carrier housings with low air ventilation.

The technology behind the extraordinarily reliable Geislinger steel spring coupling has proven its reliability for more than 60 years. Due to its reliability and low maintenance costs, the Geislinger SAE-Coupling is the first choice for a wide variety of applications.   

Available in four different stiffness levels, the SAE-Coupling adapts perfectly to the stiffness and torque required by specific applications.

To cover all possible installation situations, customized adapters with splined interfaces are available and capable of connecting to the coupling’s inner part, thus enabling axial movement.

The composite membrane enables thermal expansion of the oil and allows a rapid oil exchange through flushing.

Resistant to heat and oil, the Geislinger SAE-Coupling is the perfect solution for installations in harsh environments, such as bell or bearing carrier housings with low air ventilation.
