Conical & Telescoping Covers

Product Announcement from Centryco Inc.

Centryco's Helically wound spring guards made of various metals provide long life and maximum protection for your rods, shafts, splines, and screws from chips,debris, and other destructive elements. An equally important use is as a safety barrier to seal off pinch points and other hazards to prevent operator injury.

These helical metal coils surround and protect critical cylindrical mechanisms with overlapping coils that seal out the contaminants while wiping away dirt and debris with each thrust. The spring action holds the unit in place as it expands and compresses between two parallel surfaces. Simple flanges may be used to position the cover, which is normally installed over the end of a rod, shaft or screw assembly. However, "open wound" models are available to be wound onto the rod, shaft or screw without the necessity of partially disassembling the host machine.

Covers are also available in stainless steel to address applications subject to rusting or pitting. Sizes range from Internal Diameters of 7 to 300mm with extended lengths of up to 4500mm.

Over 2,000 custom sizes are available with delivery normally between 1 and 2 weeks. A large number of Centry Covers are available from stock and may ship within 48 hours.
