We supply flexible sleeve for S-Flex coupling in 3 patterns: one-piece strong, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split style delivers options for applications with one of a kind prerequisites in which tiny shaft separations inhibit the set up of the one-piece strong sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter on the sleeve engage with teeth of your coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are essential to connect the flanges with all the flexible sleeve which securely lock together underneath torque for smooth transmission of electrical power
Torque is transmitted via shear loading with the sleeve
All three sleeve elements are extremely elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to guard linked tools from damaging shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Varieties
These sleeves characteristic a one-piece layout molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Types, the one-piece layout is split to provide for ease of set up and removal.
E, N Sleeve Types
These sleeves feature a two-piece style with retaining ring. The E Type is molded in EPDM rubber and the N Type is molded in Neoprene. The two-piece design and style is ideal for applications in which there is difficulty in separating the shafts of the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Types
These sleeves feature both a one-piece sound (H) and two-piece split
(HS) style and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit electrical power for high torque applications. Because from the style and design and the properties of your 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 Supplies
EPDM ?§C Unless otherwise specified, S-Flex couplings are supplied with EPDM flexible 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.
