We present 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 offers options for applications with exclusive specifications exactly where small shaft separations inhibit the set up of a one-piece reliable sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter of the sleeve engage with teeth from the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are desired to connect the flanges using the versatile sleeve which securely lock together beneath torque for smooth transmission of energy
Torque is transmitted via shear loading from the sleeve
All 3 sleeve components are really elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to protect linked products from unsafe shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Types
These sleeves feature a one-piece design and style molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Forms, the one-piece style and design is split to provide for ease of installation and removal.
E, N Sleeve Kinds
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 style and design is ideal for applications exactly where there is difficulty in separating the shafts with the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Types
These sleeves attribute both a one-piece reliable (H) and two-piece split
(HS) design and style and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit energy for high torque applications. Because on the design and style 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 Components
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 gives 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.
