Rubber Washer prevents shaft collars from getting stuck.

July 14, 2015

Designed for use with U-Clip quick release shaft collars, Elasto-Ring Washer installs by hand and assures easy removal of U-Clip collar. When U-Clip is in place, Elasto-Ring is against spool flange — between flange and U-Clip. If back pressure starts to build, it is largely absorbed by Elasto-Ring which flexes against collar. Available in 10 sizes for shaft diameters from 8–35 mm, washer will not deteriorate from heat generated by friction coming from rotating spool flange. Read More

Carbon-Graphite Piston Rings seal high-pressure gases.

July 1, 2015

Carbon-graphite piston rings, used in conjunction with carbon-graphite guide rings or carrier rings that hold piston centered on cylinder bore, are self-lubricating and seal high-pressure gas in applications requiring compressed gases that do not contain oil or grease. Guide rings can be either solid rings or segmented rings with butt joints. At least two rings with off-set segment joints are needed to seal to pressures of 100 psi. Extra sets of rings are required to seal higher pressures. Read More
