We offer flexible sleeve for S-Flex coupling in three models: one-piece reliable, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split style and design gives solutions for applications with exceptional requirements where small shaft separations inhibit the set up of a one-piece solid sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter on the sleeve engage with teeth from the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are required to connect the flanges with the flexible sleeve which securely lock together under torque for smooth transmission of power
Torque is transmitted by way of shear loading from the sleeve
All three sleeve products are remarkably elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to protect linked products from harmful shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Forms
These sleeves feature a one-piece style and design molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Styles, the one-piece design and style is split to provide for ease of installation 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 the place there is difficulty in separating the shafts from the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Sorts
These sleeves attribute both a one-piece sound (H) and two-piece split
(HS) style and design and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit electrical power for high torque applications. Because from 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 Products
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 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.
