Qualities and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of three components: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of 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 from the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is very effectively suited to absorb affect loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to suit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are supplied in 5 models which are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide selection of application specifications
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with no wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, an issue commonly connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which require a limited amount of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking characteristic on the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to successfully take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
