Double Engagement
Qualities and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of three elements: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited as a result of the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection during the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is quite properly suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your specific application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in 5 designs which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide range of application demands
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 flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue frequently related with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings is often used in applications which require a constrained quantity of shaft end-float devoid of transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking characteristic of the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to efficiently take care of angular misalignment up to 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel offers 7??wind-up.
