We provide flexible sleeve for S-Flex coupling in 3 models: one-piece reliable, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split style and design presents options for applications with exclusive necessities exactly where modest shaft separations inhibit the installation of the one-piece reliable sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter of your sleeve engage with teeth with the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are required to connect the flanges with all the flexible sleeve which securely lock together beneath torque for smooth transmission of electrical power
Torque is transmitted via shear loading with the sleeve
All 3 sleeve materials are highly elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to safeguard linked gear from damaging shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Styles
These sleeves feature a one-piece style molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Styles, the one-piece style is split to provide for ease of set up and removal.
E, N Sleeve Varieties
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 layout is ideal for applications wherever there is difficulty in separating the shafts with the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Types
These sleeves attribute both a one-piece strong (H) and two-piece split
(HS) style and design and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit power for high torque applications. Because from 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 Elements
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 offers 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.
