Characteristics and Performance Information
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic with the S-Flex coupling is very effectively suited to soak up effect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to suit your precise 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 five models which are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application prerequisites
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem commonly connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is usually utilized in applications which need a limited amount of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve and the locking function of the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to efficiently take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings successfully dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
