Qualities and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result of 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 from the S-Flex coupling is incredibly properly suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your unique application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in 5 versions that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application prerequisites
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, an issue usually connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings might be used in applications which need a restricted amount of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking attribute with the mating teeth allows the S-Flex coupling to effectively deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently 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 presents 7??wind-up.
