Characteristics and Overall performance Information
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by way 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 on the S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to suit 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 offered in five designs that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide range of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem generally related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which require a limited level of shaft end-float without transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve and the locking characteristic from the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to proficiently deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
