Elastomer In Shear Variety Couplings
The basic style on the S-Flex coupling assures ease of assembly and trusted functionality. No unique resources are necessary for installation or elimination. S-Flex couplings is usually used in a wide variety of applications.
Capabilities
Easy to install
Upkeep Free of charge
No Lubrication
Dampens Vibration and Controls Shock
Torsionally Soft
Double Engagement
Traits and Overall performance Information
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by 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 while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is very effectively suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling delivers combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your certain application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque capabilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in 5 models which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to deal with a wide selection of application demands
Safety 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 normally linked with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings could be used in applications which call for a constrained level of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve as well as the locking function in the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to successfully deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
