Self-Locking Nuts resist vibration and loosening.
Press Release Summary:
Available in mild steel and high carbon, as well as 304 and 316 SS, Staytite Nuts are assembled with stainless steel spring insert, ensuring their abilities do not suffer from corrosion. As nut is installed on screw thread, insert engages with base of screw thread and flexes upward. During use, Staytite nuts resist vibration and loosening because inserts flex downwards and are pulled into close contact with screw threads by upwards anti-clockwise rotation of nut body.
Original Press Release:
Rino Stays Tight with Staytite Nuts
Precision engineered components experts Rino Industries Ltd of Chesterfield, are pleased to announce the launch of a new and exciting range of high quality nuts into their newest 848 page (their biggest ever) mail order catalogue.
Every Staytite nut, regardless of nut body material, is assembled with a stainless steel spring insert. This ensures that its abilities do not suffer from corrosion, the company states. As the nut is installed on the screw thread, the stainless steel spring insert engages with the base of the screw thread and flexes upward. The advantage this gives is a lower installation torque when compared to other types of self-locking nut, particularly those of the deformed thread type.
During use, the Staytite nut resists vibration and loosening because the inserts flex downwards and are actually 'pulled' into close contact with the screw threads by the upwards anti-clockwise rotation of the nut body. This also produces a very effective interference fit between the threads of the nut and screw. Staytite therefore have a low installation and seating torque, but a high removal torque.
A spring steel insert will revert to close to its original shape far better than a deformed or de-pitched nut made from non spring steel material. This means that on the second and subsequent installations it can out perform many other types of self-locking nut. The all-metal construction provides a greater resistance to temperatures, acid and alkaline liquids, and abrasion, than those with nylon inserts or other soft insert materials.
Staytite nuts are available in mild steel, high carbon, 304 and 316 stainless steels and other materials on request.
