Elastomer In Shear Type Couplings
The easy design and style from the S-Flex coupling guarantees ease of assembly and dependable overall performance. No exclusive resources are essential for installation or elimination. S-Flex couplings is often used in a wide range of applications.
Simple to install
Maintenance Free of charge
No Lubrication
Dampens Vibration and Controls Shock
Torsionally Soft
Double Engagement
Qualities and Performance Facts
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by way 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 within the sleeve
The shear characteristic of the S-Flex coupling is quite very well suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to suit your distinct application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque capabilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in 5 versions that are made from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide variety of application necessities
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment devoid of dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, an issue usually connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings could be utilized in applications which need a limited volume of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of about 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve along with the locking attribute with the mating teeth allows the S-Flex coupling to effectively deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
