Qualities and Efficiency Information
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection within the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is quite properly suited to soak up impact loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in 5 models that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide selection of application specifications
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without having dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, a problem frequently connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings might be utilized in applications which call for a restricted volume of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking function of the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to properly manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
