Traits and Overall performance Details
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of three parts: 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 by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is extremely properly suited to absorb affect loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to suit your precise application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in five designs which are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide variety of application needs
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem generally connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings might be used in applications which need a constrained amount of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve as well as locking feature from the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to proficiently handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
