Characteristics and Effectiveness Information
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is very very well suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your precise 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 5 designs that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide selection of application needs
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem typically related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be used in applications which require a constrained quantity of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking function of your mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to properly deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
