Traits and Efficiency Facts
The S-Flex coupling layout is comprised of three elements: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection inside the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is quite nicely suited to absorb affect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your unique application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in five versions which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide range of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of dress in. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on gear bearings, an issue normally linked with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually used in applications which need a constrained volume of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve along with the locking function in the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to properly deal with angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
