Traits and Overall performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts by means of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is extremely very well suited to soak up impact loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your specific 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 provided in five versions that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide range of application specifications
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without having wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue typically linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings might be used in applications which call for a constrained level of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial motion of about 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve plus the locking characteristic in the mating teeth allows the S-Flex coupling to proficiently handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
