Qualities and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to absorb affect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are supplied in five designs that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide variety of application needs
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment with out put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue usually related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which demand a limited volume of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking characteristic from the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to successfully handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel provides 7??wind-up.
