New Slit Type Plastic Couplings from Sterling Instrument Feature Low Cost Solutions
New Hyde Park, NY -- A new series of slit type plastic couplings from Sterling Instrument (ISO 9001:2000+AS9100B Registered Manufacturer) features low cost, UV resistance, voltage and RF isolation. These couplings, identified as the S50TLC... Inch and Metric Series are stocked in sizes 13, 19 and 25. This lightweight molded patented coupling can replace stainless/aluminum slit type couplings with low cost and improved operation. There is no windup or backlash or any derating for reversing applications. To insure a tight fit between the shaft and the coupling, a metal screw-to-metal nut design is used and does not utilize threads cut into the molded piece.
These couplings are made of engineered polymer and have stainless steel fasteners. Their bore sizes range from .125" to .500" (from 3 mm to 12 mm). They range in length from .710" to 1.400" (18 mm to 36 mm). Their maximum temperature range is -4°F to +284°F (-20°C to+140°C).
They can be used in various applications and are especially able to accommodate tight or skewed conections. Quotes, online orders, available stock, and 3D CAD Model downloads are available at our new eStore at: www.sdp-si.com/eStore. SDP/SI offers over 1000 different types of couplings including inch and metric: magnetic, flexible, rigid, oldham, bellows, flexible shaft, spider type, Fairloc® shaft type, helical, slit-type, and neoprene flexible type couplings.
