We offer versatile sleeve for S-Flex coupling in 3 styles: one-piece strong, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split layout offers options for applications with exclusive necessities where tiny shaft separations inhibit the installation of the one-piece strong sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter of your sleeve engage with teeth of your coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are necessary to connect the flanges with the flexible sleeve which securely lock together under torque for smooth transmission of electrical power
Torque is transmitted via shear loading in the sleeve
All three sleeve resources are hugely elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to protect connected products from hazardous shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Forms
These sleeves attribute a one-piece style molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Sorts, the one-piece style and design is split to provide for ease of set up and removal.
E, N Sleeve Styles
These sleeves function 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 and design is ideal for applications wherever there is difficulty in separating the shafts in the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Styles
These sleeves attribute both a one-piece solid (H) and two-piece split
(HS) style and design and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit energy for high torque applications. Because with 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 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.
