Qualities and Performance Details
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 elements: 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 by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is extremely well suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to suit your unique application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in five models which are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide selection of application needs
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with no wear. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue commonly related with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which need a constrained level of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial movement of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve along with the locking feature from the mating teeth allows the S-Flex coupling to efficiently deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings successfully 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 provides 7??wind-up.
