Traits and Performance Information
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of three 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 by means of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is very properly suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to suit your specific 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 presented in 5 designs which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide variety of application demands
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment with no wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, an issue normally connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is usually utilized in applications which demand a constrained amount of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking function with the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to proficiently deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings correctly 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.
