Standard Stainless Steel Snap Rings
Stainless steel snap rings, spring bands, The retaining rings are made of a stainless steel alloy with unique properties The stainless steel strip is rolled to produce a mirror finish. This surface improves corrosion resistance.
The strip is firstly machined to remove the sharp corners. This makes handling safer during sewing into the filter bags and protects the filter bag fabric from damage during operation.
The strip is then cut into ring lengths. The ring lengths are then fastened together using stainless steel eyelets/rivets. By using stainless steel eyelets the risk of electrolytic corrosion between the strip and the eyelets is eliminated. Spot welding can also be performed when required.
Rings can be supplied in any diameter size from a minimum of 95mm. Smaller rings can be supplied from some widths of stainless steel strip.
