Traits and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result of the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to soak up impact loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which may 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 presented in 5 versions which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide selection of application needs
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, a problem usually connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is often utilized in applications which demand a constrained amount of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action in the elastomeric sleeve along with the locking characteristic with the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to effectively deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
