Traits and Performance Details
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts by means 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 extremely nicely suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in 5 designs which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide range of application demands
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, an issue commonly related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings may be utilized in applications which need a constrained quantity of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking characteristic with the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to successfully handle angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
