Traits and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of three 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 through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection during the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is very properly suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your precise 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 models which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application requirements
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem generally connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which demand a limited quantity of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking function from the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to efficiently take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
