Characteristics and Performance Information
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts by means of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection within the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is very well suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to suit your distinct TORSIONALapplication
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in five designs that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide range of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, a problem typically related with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which require a limited volume of shaft end-float with out transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action in the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking attribute from the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to properly manage angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings proficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
