Traits and Efficiency Details
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of three parts: 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 by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic with the S-Flex coupling is quite nicely suited to soak up impact loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your specific 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 which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide range of application prerequisites
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue usually linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which need a constrained amount of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking characteristic on the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to proficiently deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
