We are supplying UNE flexible couplings for various types of air compressors. Large and powerful industrial air compressors require a high level of efficiency, high degree of reliability and a long service life. These air compressors are used in the almost all industrial houses like oil and gas industry, chemical industry and in special industrial applications. Different types of air compressors like reciprocating air compressor and rotatory air compressor require high quality couplings that bring more control over the machines (such as the rotor speed control or machine flexibility in operation).

An electric motor or diesel engine is used to operate the compressor. In general, a powerful electric motor is connected with the compressor via a coupling. For a diesel engine, the same is coupled to the compressor via a coupling and gearbox. This is independent of whether the compressor is a reciprocating one, a screw-type one or a rotary compressor. The most important functions of the flexible coupling are: Balancing the offset between the motor and the compressor, efficient torque transmission, overloading protection and minimization of torsional vibrations. Another advantages of elastomeric couplings in compressors is the fact that they require no lubrication and very little maintenance.

The UNE flexible couplings have elastomeric elements reinforced with a synthetic mesh thereby providing a longer life for the coupling installation. The flexible couplings are able to easily cushion and absorb higher impacts of overloading. Easy and practical replacement makes UNE couplings a great choice for industrial houses.

UNE Couplings are now available in the middle east market and they are looking to partner with OEM manufacturers in the Middle East region. Dubai’s having easily established itself as the international business hub, is the obvious choice for UNE to open its trade offices. Dubai is home to huge free trade zones, one of the world’s busiest international airports and a world-class container port. Dubai's trade performance has shown steady and sustainable growth over the last many years.

We partner with manufacturers having the highest quality compressors and heavy equipment confirming to European norms, leading the way with new innovative products and solutions with every passing year.




Since its foundation in 1970 in one of the most prosperous areas of Northern Spain, in the geographical center of the Basque country, and with the steel, paper and shipbuilding sectors booming, UNE started manufacturing flexible couplings that best fits in your production line, ensuring a long life of your machinery due to its capacity to absorb mis-alignments and vibrations.

We are a proactive and young company, able to adapt to the constant market changes and offer their customers high quality products fulfilling the highest standards. The company satisfies the ISO 9001 certificate.

UNE belongs to GRUPO ORIA, which supports a solid and reliable position in the market, allowing the company to be always at the forefront and close to the customer.

DIRECT INDUSTRIALS is proud to partner with UNE and provide their range of UNEFLEX, ACOFLEX and LAMAFLEX couplings for the customers in Dubai, UAE and Middle East.
