We supply flexible sleeve for S-Flex coupling in three designs: one-piece sound, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split style supplies answers for applications with exceptional demands where modest shaft separations inhibit the installation of the one-piece reliable sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter on the sleeve engage with teeth of your coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are wanted to connect the flanges with all the versatile sleeve which securely lock together beneath torque for smooth transmission of electrical power
Torque is transmitted by means of shear loading from the sleeve
All 3 sleeve supplies are very elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to safeguard connected tools from dangerous shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Varieties
These sleeves attribute a one-piece layout molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Forms, the one-piece design and style is split to provide for ease of set up and removal.
E, N Sleeve Styles
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 style is ideal for applications exactly where there is difficulty in separating the shafts from the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Varieties
These sleeves characteristic both a one-piece reliable (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 in the layout 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 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.
