Qualities and Effectiveness Facts
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection within the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is quite effectively suited to soak up influence loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your specific 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 versions which are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide range of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, a problem commonly connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which demand a limited level of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking attribute with the mating teeth allows the S-Flex coupling to properly handle angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
