Traits and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of 3 parts: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection during the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to soak up influence loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your certain 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 made available in 5 models which are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide variety of application demands
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem commonly connected with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings might be utilized in applications which demand a restricted quantity of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial motion of around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action in the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking characteristic on the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to correctly manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
