Traits and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible 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 while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is extremely nicely suited to soak up effect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your unique application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are supplied in 5 versions which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide variety of application necessities
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without having wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue frequently connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which need a limited level of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial motion of about 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve and the locking characteristic of the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to proficiently manage angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
