Qualities and Efficiency Details
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of 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 quite properly suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your certain application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are supplied in 5 versions which are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide selection of application prerequisites
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue typically connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings might be utilized in applications which demand a limited level of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking attribute of your mating teeth allows the S-Flex coupling to properly deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
