Traits and Functionality Details
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 parts: 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 via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is quite effectively suited to soak up influence loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in 5 designs that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide selection of application requirements
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with no wear. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, a problem normally connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually utilized in applications which require a constrained volume of shaft end-float without transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking attribute of the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to efficiently handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
