The sleeve coupling transmits low to medium torque between connected equipment in shear through an elastomeric insert with male splines that mate with female hub splines. The insert material is typically EPDM, Neoprene or Hytrel and the insert can be a one or two piece design.
- Moderate misalignment
- Torsional dampening (vibration)
- End float with slight axial clearance
- Low to medium torque, general purpose applications
