Traits and Efficiency Facts
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of three elements: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection within the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is incredibly well suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your unique application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five versions which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide range of application requirements
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue usually connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually used in applications which need a constrained volume of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve along with the locking characteristic with the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to proficiently handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
