BENERI® RETAINING RINGS - Heavy Duty Axially Mounting, External for Shafts

Product Description

External Retaining Rings for Shafts are safety elements for axially mounting universal use. Retaining Rings can transmit considerable axial loads between the element of the device which exerts the force and the groove in which the ring is assembled. Once the ring is assembled in the groove of a shaft, the portion of the ring extending beyond the groove surface holds an assembly in place, even under loaded conditions. The 2160-5160 family of EXTERNAL, AXIAL MOUNT Retaining Rings are rated HEAVY DUTY (for greater thrust loads) and available in shaft diameter sizes between .394 and 2.000 inches, and groove sizes between .362 and 1.880 inches. Ring thicknesses are between .035 and .125 inches.
