Qualities and Functionality Facts
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of three elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection during the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to soak up effect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your specific application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in 5 versions that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide selection of application specifications
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, a problem normally related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which call for a limited volume of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve plus the locking characteristic from the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to properly handle angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
