Traits and Effectiveness Information
The S-Flex coupling 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 via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection within the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is incredibly effectively suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to suit your unique application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that range 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 can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application demands
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem typically associated with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which demand a limited level of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking function of the mating teeth allows the S-Flex coupling to correctly deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
