We give versatile sleeve for S-Flex coupling in three types: one-piece solid, one-piece split, and two-piece with retaining ring
The one-piece split style offers JE%20and%20JN%20Typeoptions for applications with special necessities where little shaft separations inhibit the installation of the one-piece strong sleeve
Pre-molded teeth along the diameter of the sleeve engage with teeth in the coupling flanges
No clamps or screws are wanted to connect the flanges with the flexible sleeve which securely lock with each other under torque for smooth transmission of electrical power
Torque is transmitted as a result of shear loading of your sleeve
All 3 sleeve materials are remarkably elastic which permits the S-Flex coupling to guard linked gear from damaging shock loading, vibration, and shaft misalignment
JE, JN, JES, JNS Sleeve Sorts
These sleeves attribute a one-piece style and design molded in EPDM & Neoprene rubber. In the case of JES & JNS Styles, the one-piece style and design is split to provide for ease of installation and removal.
E, N Sleeve Sorts
These sleeves function 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 from the driver and driven.
H, HS Sleeve Forms
These sleeves attribute both a one-piece solid (H) and two-piece split
(HS) style and are molded of Hytrel. The sleeves in Hytrel material are designed to transmit electrical power for high torque applications. Because of the layout 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 Materials
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.
