Characteristics and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of 3 parts: two flanges with inner 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 way 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 incredibly effectively suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your particular 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 made available in five designs that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide selection of application specifications
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue typically connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is often used in applications which demand a restricted volume of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking feature with the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to effectively take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
