Traits and Functionality Details
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result 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 from the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is incredibly effectively suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your unique 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 presented in five versions which are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide range of application needs
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem usually linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which require a restricted level of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking function with the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to effectively manage angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
