Traits and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result of 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 from the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is very nicely suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling presents combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to suit your specific application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are offered in five models that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide variety of application needs
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment with no wear. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, a problem usually associated with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings can be used in applications which require a restricted amount of shaft end-float without having transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of about 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve and also the locking function in the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to effectively handle angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings properly dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected products. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
