Qualities and Functionality Details
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is quite well suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in five versions that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide range of application demands
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without having put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, an issue normally associated with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings might be used in applications which require a constrained volume of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking attribute with the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to correctly deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
