Danielson, CT – SPIROL International Corporation is pleased to introduce a line of 316 stainless steel Coiled Spring Pins designed for applications used in highly corrosive environments.
Easily recognized by its unique 2¼-coil cross-section, Coiled Spring Pins are self-retaining pins that compress when installed into the host component. They are the only pins with uniform strength and flexibility after insertion. Their shock absorbing design dampens forces and vibration to prevent hole damage and prolong assembly life.
While all 300 series stainless steels are considered to be highly corrosion resistant, Type 316 exhibits superior resistance to pitting in more severe environments such as when submerged in seawater and when used in the petrochemical industry. This is due to the higher nickel content and, in particular, the addition of molybdenum which significantly increases the chemical resistance of this alloy.
SPIROL’s 316 Stainless Steel Coiled Spring Pins are offered in metric sizes with nominal diameters ranging from Ø2mm to Ø6mm and lengths from 8mm to 50mm.
Here are the specifications for the new 316 Stainless Steel Coiled Spring Pins.
