PARALLEL: The S–Flex Endurance coupling accepts up to .062 inches of parallel misalignment without wear. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on equipment bearings, a problem commonly associated with parallel misalignment.
AXIAL: The S–Flex Endurance couplings can be used in applications which require a limited amount of shaft end-float without transferring thrust loads to equipment bearings. Axial movement of approximately 1/8 inch accepted.
ANGULAR: The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve and the locking feature of the mating teeth allows the S–Flex Endurance coupling to effectively handle angular misalignment up to 1°.
TORSIONAL: S-Flex Endurance couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected equipment. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15° at their rated torque. Hytrel provides 7° wind-up.
