Traits and Effectiveness Facts
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of 3 parts: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is quite very well suited to soak up impact loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your specific application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in 5 models which are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide variety of application specifications
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without having put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, an issue normally linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually utilized in applications which demand a constrained amount of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve plus the locking feature with the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to successfully take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
