Dampens Vibration and Controls Shock
Torsionally Soft
Double Engagement
Qualities and Functionality Facts
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 way of the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection during the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is quite properly suited to soak up influence loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in 5 designs that are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide selection of application prerequisites
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
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, a problem usually linked with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings might be utilized in applications which require a limited volume of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking function on the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to efficiently deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
