Characteristics and Overall performance Information
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 parts: 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 through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is quite nicely suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to suit your specific application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five designs that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide selection of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue generally connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings may be used in applications which demand a constrained volume of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking function on the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to proficiently manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
