Qualities and Efficiency Information
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible 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 inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is quite very well suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are supplied in five models which are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address 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 devoid of put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue typically connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings might be used in applications which demand a constrained level of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve and also the locking function of the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to successfully deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel provides 7??wind-up.
