Qualities and Performance Information
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 within the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is incredibly very well suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are supplied in 5 designs which are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide variety of application prerequisites
Safety 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, a problem commonly linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be utilized in applications which demand a limited amount of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking feature of the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to properly handle angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
