Qualities and Effectiveness Details
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic from the S-Flex coupling is quite well suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your specific application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five designs that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide selection of application demands
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem usually linked with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is often utilized in applications which call for a restricted level of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial motion of about 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve plus the locking attribute with the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to proficiently deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel provides 7??wind-up.
