We present flexible sleeve for S-Flex coupling in 3 types: one-piece sound, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split style delivers answers for applications with special demands wherever tiny shaft separations inhibit the installation of a 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 required to connect the flanges using the flexible sleeve which securely lock with each other under torque for smooth transmission of power
Torque is transmitted by shear loading on the sleeve
All three sleeve components are remarkably elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to guard connected gear from unsafe shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Types
These sleeves feature a one-piece style molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Kinds, the one-piece design and style 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 style is ideal for applications wherever there is difficulty in separating the shafts of the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Sorts
These sleeves attribute both a one-piece strong (H) and two-piece split
(HS) design and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit electrical power for high torque applications. Because on the layout 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 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 supplies 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.
