Qualities and Functionality Facts
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts by means of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is extremely effectively suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in five designs that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide selection of application demands
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without having wear. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem normally related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which demand a restricted amount of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of about 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve and also the locking characteristic of the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to correctly deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard linked products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
