Qualities and Overall performance Details
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of three elements: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic with the S-Flex coupling is very effectively suited to soak up impact loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to suit your certain application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in 5 models that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application specifications
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with no dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem typically linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually used in applications which need a limited amount of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve and the locking feature of the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to correctly handle angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly 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 presents 7??wind-up.
