We give versatile sleeve for S-Flex coupling in 3 patterns: one-piece reliable, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split layout provides solutions for applications with unique prerequisites in which small shaft separations inhibit the set up of a one-piece solid sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter of the sleeve engage with teeth in the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are required to connect the flanges with the flexible sleeve which securely lock with each other under torque for smooth transmission of power
Torque is transmitted as a result of shear loading on the sleeve
All three sleeve resources are really elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to protect linked equipment from unsafe shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Styles
These sleeves function a one-piece design molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Types, the one-piece design is split to provide for ease of installation and removal.
E, N Sleeve Kinds
These sleeves attribute 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 the place there is difficulty in separating the shafts with the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Styles
These sleeves attribute both a one-piece strong (H) and two-piece split
(HS) layout and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit electrical power for high torque applications. Because of your design and the properties of your 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 Resources
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 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.
