Traits and Overall performance Details
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result of the flanges mounted on both 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 quite well suited to soak up effect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five versions that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide range of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment with out dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem frequently related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is often used in applications which demand a constrained level of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial motion of about 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking function from the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to proficiently deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
