Qualities and Functionality Facts
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by way 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 during the sleeve
The shear characteristic from the S-Flex coupling is very effectively suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your certain application
Thirteen sizes can be found 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 tackle a wide variety of application needs
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of wear. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem generally associated with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be used in applications which demand a limited amount of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve and the locking characteristic with the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to effectively manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel provides 7??wind-up.
