Qualities and Efficiency Details
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result of 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 in the sleeve
The shear characteristic with the S-Flex coupling is quite properly suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to suit your certain application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in five models which are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide range of application requirements
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem usually associated with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is often utilized in applications which call for a restricted volume of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial movement of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking attribute on the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to effectively take care of angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel provides 7??wind-up.
