Traits and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of 3 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 by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is extremely well suited to absorb affect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your certain 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 made available in five models that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide selection of application needs
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with no dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, a problem typically related with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which require a limited amount of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action in the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking function with the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to correctly manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings successfully 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 delivers 7??wind-up.
