Characteristics and Effectiveness Details
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited via the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection within the sleeve
The shear characteristic from the S-Flex coupling is quite properly suited to soak up effect loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to suit your unique application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are supplied in 5 versions which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem usually related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is often utilized in applications which call for a constrained quantity of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action from the elastomeric sleeve along with the locking attribute from the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to effectively manage angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect linked equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
