Qualities and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with internal 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 way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is incredibly very well suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your precise 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 5 versions that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application requirements
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue usually connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be utilized in applications which need a restricted volume of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of about 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking attribute with the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to effectively manage angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel provides 7??wind-up.
