Traits and Overall performance Information
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of three elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to soak up influence loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your unique application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in 5 versions that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide range of application specifications
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, a problem normally related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which demand a limited volume of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve along with the locking function of your mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to properly take care of angular misalignment up to 1??.
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 presents 7??wind-up.
