Qualities and Effectiveness Information
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of the flanges mounted on the two 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 with the S-Flex coupling is very effectively suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your precise 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 presented in 5 designs which are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide selection of application specifications
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, an issue commonly linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings may be utilized in applications which require a limited amount of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking attribute with the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to efficiently take care of angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
