Traits and Efficiency Details
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through 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 while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is very well suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your unique application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in 5 versions that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide range of application demands
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without having dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, an issue generally connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings may be used in applications which call for a constrained amount of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve as well as locking characteristic in the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to successfully manage angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard linked tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
