Interlock Liner Flex Coupling Data - Max Temperature / Max Angle

304 Stainless Education Exhaust Flex Couplings

Exhaust Flex Coupling Stainless Steel | Ace Race Parts

We are often asked about the Maximum Operating Temperature and the Maximum Axial Deflection Angle, or the maximum angle of movement, our Flex Couplings are able to handle. The maximum axial deflection angle that our Flex Coupling are able to handle is directly related to the overall length of the coupling itself. For shorter lengths, like our 4" overall length couplings, the maximum angle is 3°. For longer couplings, like our 10" overall length couplings, the maximum angle is quite a bit higher at 9°. Below is a table that shows both the maximum axial deflection angle, as well as the maximum operating temperature for all of our Flex Couplings.
