Qualities and Functionality Details
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of three parts: two flanges with internal 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 through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your certain application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in five designs that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide selection of application specifications
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with out dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, a problem frequently related with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings may be used in applications which demand a restricted volume of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve and the locking function with the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to effectively handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
