Characteristics and Efficiency Facts
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of three components: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile 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 from the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is extremely nicely suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to suit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five versions that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide range of application specifications
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem frequently related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually used in applications which require a constrained level of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking characteristic on the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to effectively manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings successfully dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
