Qualities and Overall performance Details
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by way of the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is very very well suited to soak up effect loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your particular 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 five designs which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide range of application requirements
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without having dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue usually connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings might be used in applications which require a restricted amount of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking attribute on the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to efficiently take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
