Qualities and Functionality Facts
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of three components: 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 means of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic with the S-Flex coupling is quite effectively suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to suit your unique 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 5 models which are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide selection of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem frequently linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings may be used in applications which demand a limited level of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve as well as locking function of your mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to effectively deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
