Banish Rust and Corrosion

New painted S-Flex flange from Lovejoy

Compared to traditional black oxide, the new painted S-Flex coupling protects the flange from salt spray and other chemicals, and is easier to handle. The coupling is easy to install and during routine maintenance, is fully interchangeable with parts created by other manufacturers.

One of the four key specifications vital to selecting an S-Flex coupling is surrounding environmental factors; including extremes of temperature, space limitations, or corrosive conditions, such as caustic wash downs or harsh, abrasive chemicals, common particularly in the pulp and paper or petrochemical industries, where environmental factors often include all of the above. Industrial manufacturing settings that utilize centrifugal pumps commonly use an S-Flex flange, most often in an electric motor/pump combination. In addition to the pulp and paper and petrochemical industries, other pump scenarios common to S-Flex flanges include woodworking machinery, sugar, rubber and textile industries.

Painted S-Flex

S-Flex flanges from Lovejoy come in five models, made from zinc die cast or cast iron, in sizes ranging from 3/8 to 5 ½ inches. Typically matched with a sleeve, these are available in EPDM rubber, Neoprene or Hytrel® to address a broad range of application requirements.
