Traits and Effectiveness Information
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on each 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 with the S-Flex coupling is incredibly properly suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which can be assembled to fit your precise application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five designs that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide variety of application specifications
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, an issue usually connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be used in applications which need a constrained quantity of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of about 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking feature from the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to proficiently deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
