Characteristics and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result of the flanges mounted on both 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 nicely suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to fit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in five versions that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide selection of application needs
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, a problem generally linked with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is usually utilized in applications which need a constrained quantity of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve along with the locking feature of your mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to proficiently handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
