We present versatile sleeve for S-Flex coupling in three patterns: one-piece reliable, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split design delivers options for applications with special needs exactly where tiny shaft separations inhibit the installation of a one-piece strong sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter with the sleeve engage with teeth from the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are required to connect the flanges with all the flexible sleeve which securely lock with each other under torque for smooth transmission of electrical power
Torque is transmitted via shear loading of your sleeve
All 3 sleeve components are extremely elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to guard connected gear from damaging shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Forms
These sleeves function a one-piece design and style molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Types, the one-piece design is split to provide for ease of set up and removal.
E, N Sleeve Styles
These sleeves feature 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 is ideal for applications the place there is difficulty in separating the shafts of the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Varieties
These sleeves characteristic 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 on the design and style 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 Elements
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 presents 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.
