Qualities and Functionality Facts
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on the two 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 of your S-Flex coupling is quite very well suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to suit your unique application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in five versions that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide variety of application prerequisites
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with out put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem generally related with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is often utilized in applications which need a limited volume of shaft end-float without transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve as well as locking attribute of your mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to proficiently take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings successfully dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
