Traits and Overall performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner 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 during the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is quite nicely suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five designs that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application necessities
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of wear. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, an issue frequently connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings might be utilized in applications which need a limited quantity of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve along with the locking function of your mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to effectively take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard linked tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
