Washdown shaft collars
By Design Engineering StaffPower Transmission Ruland shaft collars
Ruland collars made from stainless steel and FDA compliant housing.
Ruland introduced its washdown shaft collars, which feature a patent pending assembly containing a type 303 stainless steel shaft collar, a two-piece housing made from FDA compliant materials, and three O-rings with NSF H1 registered lubricant. The collars offer holding power comparable to clamp style shaft collars and allow for simple adjustments without marring the shaft. Ruland’s exclusive design is pending an IP69K rating against the ingress of dust and water up to 80°C and 8 to 10 MPa of pressure. Washdown shaft collars are supplied with a zinc-plated forged alloy screw and are available for shaft sizes ranging from 1/4 to 1 inch or 6 mm to 25 mm.
