We supply flexible sleeve for S-Flex coupling in three styles: one-piece reliable, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split style provides options for applications with special needs exactly where smaller shaft separations inhibit the installation of the one-piece sound sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter on the sleeve engage with teeth from the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are wanted to connect the flanges with all the flexible sleeve which securely lock with each other underneath torque for smooth transmission of energy
Torque is transmitted by means of shear loading from the sleeve
All 3 sleeve components are really elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to protect connected equipment from damaging shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Types
These sleeves feature a one-piece layout molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Varieties, the one-piece design and style is split to provide for ease of installation and removal.
E, N Sleeve Forms
These sleeves characteristic a two-piece design 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 wherever there is difficulty in separating the shafts of the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Styles
These sleeves feature both a one-piece strong (H) and two-piece split
(HS) design and style and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit electrical power for high torque applications. Because of the design and the properties in 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 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 provides 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.
