Traits and Overall performance Information
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of three elements: two flanges with internal 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 by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is incredibly very well suited to absorb affect loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your particular 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 created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide range of application requirements
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue generally linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which need a constrained quantity of shaft end-float without transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking feature from the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to efficiently take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
