Qualities and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic with the S-Flex coupling is incredibly properly suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to suit your specific application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in 5 models which are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide variety of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem frequently related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings may be used in applications which call for a limited level of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve and the locking characteristic from the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to effectively manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel provides 7??wind-up.
