Traits and Efficiency Details
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is very well suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to fit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five models that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application requirements
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, a problem usually connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings may be utilized in applications which demand a limited volume of shaft end-float without transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve and also the locking feature in the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to proficiently handle angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
