Traits and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of three parts: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts by means of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection during the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is quite properly suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are supplied in five versions which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide selection of application requirements
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment with no dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, an issue normally related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings might be utilized in applications which require a constrained quantity of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking function with the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to successfully manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
