We provide flexible sleeve for S-Flex coupling in 3 designs: one-piece strong, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split design provides remedies for applications with exceptional specifications in which smaller shaft separations inhibit the installation of the one-piece solid sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter with the sleeve engage with teeth of the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are required to connect the flanges with the versatile sleeve which securely lock collectively under torque for smooth transmission of power
Torque is transmitted by way of shear loading from the sleeve
All 3 sleeve resources are hugely elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to safeguard connected equipment from damaging shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Sorts
These sleeves characteristic a one-piece design molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Forms, the one-piece style is split to provide for ease of set up and removal.
E, N Sleeve Kinds
These sleeves function a two-piece style and design with retaining ring. The E Type is molded in EPDM rubber and the N Type is molded in Neoprene. The two-piece style and design is ideal for applications the place there is difficulty in separating the shafts in the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Kinds
These sleeves function both a one-piece strong (H) and two-piece split
(HS) style and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit power for high torque applications. Because of your design and the properties on the Hytrel molded sleeve, the H and HS sleeves should not be used as direct replacements for EPDM or Neoprene sleeves, and can only be used with S, TF, or SC flanges.
Sleeve Materials
EPDM ?§C Unless otherwise specified, S-Flex couplings are supplied with EPDM versatile sleeves. EPDM has good resistance to commonly used chemicals and is generally not affected by dirt or moisture. Color is black.
NEOPRENE ?§C Neoprene offers very good performance characteristics for most applications and offers a very good resistance to chemical and oil conditions. Color is black with a green dot.
HYTREL ?§C Hytrel is a polyester elastomer designed for high torque and high temperature applications and offers excellent resistance to chemical and oil conditions. Color is orange.
