  • Frequently Asked Questions/Technical Information
    A: Different materials are better suited for different applications and environments. The Material Properties Table provides operating temperature ranges and other useful information. A: When heat-treated to spring temper, Stainless Steel becomes magnetic. Stainless Steel springs are slightly less
  • Wire-formed Rings
    applications. Round-section rings are for external use on shafts only and are used where the expected load is light. Ring assembly and disassembly tools range from a screwdriver to automatic tools, depending on the application. Carbon spring steel (SAE-1060) is the standard material used in retaining rings
  • Spiral-Wound Rings
    ends. The standard material for spiral-wound retaining rings is carbon spring steel. Some rings are available in other materials such as 302, 316, and 17-7 PH/C stainless steel, NS A286 alloy, beryllium copper, and Inconel X-750. Time and stress greatly influence the allowable operating temperature
  • Stamped Rings
    with a screwdriver or other hand tool. Self-locking rings do not require grooves. They are available for assemblies in which the fastener need not absorb any sizable thrust, but instead serves mainly as a positioning or locking device. Most stamped retaining rings are made of high-carbon spring steel
  • Quick-Action Couplers
    is permissible. They are suitable for vacuums down to 10 >= torr. On pump supply lines, a size should be selected that will not produce about 1.5-psi pressure drop at required flow. A wide variety of seals and materials are available for these couplers: carbon steel, stainless steel, brass, aluminum
