We offer flexible sleeve for S-Flex coupling in 3 models: one-piece solid, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split style and design provides remedies for applications with distinctive prerequisites in which tiny shaft separations inhibit the installation of the one-piece strong sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter of the sleeve engage with teeth of your coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are needed to connect the flanges using the flexible sleeve which securely lock together underneath torque for smooth transmission of electrical power
Torque is transmitted via shear loading in the sleeve
All 3 sleeve supplies are hugely elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to protect linked equipment from dangerous shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Types
These sleeves attribute a one-piece style and design molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Kinds, the one-piece design is split to provide for ease of set up and removal.
E, N Sleeve Kinds
These sleeves function a two-piece layout 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 the place there is difficulty in separating the shafts of the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Types
These sleeves characteristic both a one-piece sound (H) and two-piece split
(HS) layout and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit power for high torque applications. Because with the style and the properties with 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 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 delivers 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.
