Characteristics and Overall performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is extremely very well suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to suit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in 5 designs that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application demands
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with no put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem typically related with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is often used in applications which require a restricted level of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking feature from the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to successfully handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings successfully dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
