Characteristics and Efficiency Details
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result of the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to absorb impact loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your specific application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five models which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide range of application requirements
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without wear. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, a problem generally associated with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is often used in applications which demand a constrained amount 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 and the locking function of the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to efficiently take care of angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
