Spirol International Expands Offering of Dowel Bushings and Spring Dowels


WINDSOR, ONTARIO - Spirol International Corporation's Tubular Products Division has expanded its standard product offering of Dowel Bushings and Spring Dowels to meet customer needs in large bolting applications, such as those used in large power train and pump industries.

Dowel Bushings align mating components and provide an ID clearance hole for a bolt, eliminating the need for a separate dowel hole. Spring Dowels align mating components when the bolt must be located in a separate location. Both products protect bolts from shear loading that will cause premature failure of the bolt.

These products significantly reduce customer component/assembly costs. The need for solid ground dowels and precise hole tolerances are eliminated for applications that do not require the shear force resistance of a solid hardened dowel. The new sizes are designed for use with 5/8", 3/4", 14mm, and 16mm bolt sizes, and are offered as standard in heat-treated, high-carbon spring steel. Spirol International also offers Application Engineering Services to assist customers with special applications.
