Traits and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of 3 parts: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on each 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 the S-Flex coupling is extremely properly suited to absorb affect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in 5 versions that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide variety of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, an issue generally associated with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually utilized in applications which require a constrained level of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking attribute from the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to proficiently deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
