Characteristics and Performance Facts
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 way of the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is very effectively suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides 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 offered in 5 designs which are produced 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 with out dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem generally connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings may be utilized in applications which demand a restricted amount of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action with the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking function of the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to efficiently take care of angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
