Characteristics and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by way of the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic with the S-Flex coupling is incredibly very well suited to soak up impact loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to suit your precise application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in five models that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with 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 with no dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, a problem normally linked with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is often used in applications which require a restricted volume of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve and the locking function from the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to proficiently manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings successfully dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
