Traits and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by way of 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 while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic from the S-Flex coupling is extremely nicely suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to suit your precise 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 provided in five models that 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 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 linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be utilized in applications which call for a restricted amount of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of about 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking function on the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to effectively deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings proficiently 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.
