The simple shaft sleeve is indispensable when it comes to shielding shaft assemblies in pumps and compressors. These cylindrical, hollow metal tubes are easily mounted over a shaft or shaft assembly, protecting and even sealing in corrosive environments. The main thing you’ll want to keep in mind when shopping for your shaft sleeve is the desired diameter. Once you’ve got that figured, you’re on your way. Zoro also features an extensive selection of adapter sleeves.
