Elastomer In Shear Style Couplings
The very simple style with the S-Flex coupling ensures ease of assembly and dependable overall performance. No specific resources are desired for installation or removal. S-Flex couplings could be utilized in a wide range of applications.
Features
Straightforward to put in
Maintenance Cost-free
No Lubrication
Dampens Vibration and Controls Shock
Torsionally Soft
Double Engagement
Traits and Overall performance Information
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of three parts: two flanges with internal teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by 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 while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is incredibly well suited to absorb affect loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in 5 models which are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to handle a wide range of application requirements
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
PARALLEL:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment without dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on products bearings, an issue generally linked with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL:
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which need a limited level of shaft end-float without transferring thrust loads to tools bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR:
The flexing action on the elastomeric sleeve as well as locking feature on the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to properly take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
TORSIONAL:
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel delivers 7??wind-up.
