Qualities and Overall performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is extremely effectively suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your specific application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in 5 designs that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide selection of application demands
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem frequently linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings may be utilized in applications which require a restricted amount of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action in the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking characteristic of the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to effectively handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings successfully dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
