Traits and Efficiency Information
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your distinct 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 created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application requirements
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 commonly linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings may be utilized in applications which demand a limited volume of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking feature on the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to correctly deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
