Qualities and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is extremely very well suited to soak up influence loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your certain application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in five designs that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide selection of application prerequisites
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue commonly connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which demand a constrained amount of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking characteristic of the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to properly take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings successfully dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
