Qualities and Performance Details
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic with the S-Flex coupling is incredibly nicely suited to soak up effect loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your particular 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 supplied in 5 models that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide range of application needs
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without having dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue typically related with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings may be utilized in applications which need a constrained volume of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action in the elastomeric sleeve along with the locking attribute in the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to successfully handle angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel provides 7??wind-up.
