Qualities and Efficiency Information
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is very well suited to absorb affect loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your certain application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in 5 designs which are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide variety of application demands
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without having wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue usually related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be used in applications which require a limited level of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of about 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve and the locking function of your mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to proficiently take care of angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard linked products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
