Rotor Clip BE Rings
Compensating for accumulated tolerances is what a BE “Bowed” retaining ring is designed to do on a shaft. Once snapped into the groove, bowed rings exert a force or a “preload” on the retained parts for the range specified.
Rotor Clip C Rings
Ideal for low clearance applications where radial installation is preferred.
Rotor Clip E Rings
Perhaps the most popular and widely used radial retaining ring is the “E” (so named because it is shaped like the letter “E”.) Three prongs make contact with the bottom of the groove and provide a shoulder for effective retention of assemblies.
Rotor Clip EL Rings
Another variation of a bowed E ring is the EL. In addition to the bowed design for eliminating “play” in an assembly, it also features two prongs, which extend from the inner circumference to the open end locking the ring firmly into place.
Rotor Clip LC Rings
The LC ring is produced in two identical halves. The ends interlock into a groove on a shaft and, once assembled, are dynamically balanced. As a result, they are particularly effective at retaining assemblies with extremely high rotational speeds.
Rotor Clip PO Rings
The PO ring features wide “ears” (resembling those of a poodle dog, thus the name) which offer extra retention surface against the retained part. PO rings also come in thinner sizes as a standard series of rings known as POL.
Rotor Clip POL Rings
The PO ring features wide “ears” (resembling those of a poodle dog, thus the name) which offer extra retention surface against the retained part. PO rings also come in thinner sizes as a standard series of rings known as POL.
Rotor Clip RE Rings
The RE retaining ring is a reinforced version of the E ring, which will accommodate higher thrust loadings and RPM. RE rings function in the same groove as regular E rings, so that you can change from one to the other without re-engineering the application.
Rotor Clip SE Rings
Perhaps the most popular and widely used radial retaining ring is the “E” (so named because it is shaped like the letter “E”.) Three prongs make contact with the bottom of the groove and provide a shoulder for effective retention of assemblies.
