Qualities and Functionality Details
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by way of the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is incredibly effectively suited to soak up impact loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in 5 models that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide range of application requirements
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without wear. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue usually associated with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings may be utilized in applications which demand a limited amount of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking characteristic with the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to proficiently manage angular misalignment as much as 1??.
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 delivers 7??wind-up.
