Plymouth, Minnesota: Zero-Max now offers its CD couplings in a single flex stainless steel model made of 300 series stainless in sizes 30 to 52 with standard product delivery and at very competitive prices. The new stainless steel CD coupling is ideal for food, dairy and clean room applications and where frequent washdowns are required or harsh environments could corrode the coupling components. Designed with stainless steel clamp style or keyway style hubs, this new coupling model features the unique, patented composite disc design of the original CD coupling, which has become a world-wide favorite of designers faced with system backlash and misalignment issues. Through the disc’s open arm design and use of rugged composite materials, the stainless steel CD coupling reacts to coupling forces with high torsional stiffness, and with ability to lessen reaction loads and to absorb and dampen shock and vibration. By combining the best features found in both steel disc and elastomeric couplings, the CD coupling provides higher misalignment and greater torque capacity with more flexibility and torsional stiffness. These new single flex stainless steel CD couplings are available in outside diameters of 3 inch (76.2 mm), 3.75 inch (95.3 mm), 4.50 inch (114 mm) and 5.25 inch (133 mm) with hubs of either clamp style or keyway style. Bore sizes are available in inch, millimeter, or combinations of each. Interested in more information? Please visit Or call 1-800-533-1731 for FREE brochure or CD ROM with sizing software included.
