Traits and Efficiency Details
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result of the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts by means of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic from the S-Flex coupling is quite very well suited to soak up impact loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit 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 5 designs that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide range of application specifications
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with out wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue frequently associated with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings may be used in applications which call for a restricted level of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking characteristic in the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to proficiently handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
