An improved flexible diaphragm coupling including
a floating shaft connector having flexible discs welded thereto, the
flexible discs connected to axially spaced, coaxially aligned shaft
mounted hubs, pilot rings surrounding the discs for aligning the assembly
with the hubs and damper means fixed to the floating shaft and the pilot
The damper means which includes an elastomeric
inner ring serves to dampen axial oscillations of the coupling assembly
and seals the disc element from adverse contaminants.
