Qualities and Overall performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is very well suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to fit your precise 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 that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide variety of application requirements
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem commonly linked with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings might be used in applications which demand a constrained amount of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action in the elastomeric sleeve and the locking feature of your mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to successfully manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard linked products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
