INTERLOCK GARTER SPRINGS
Garter Springs are extension springs with the ends fastened
together to form a ring. They are primarily used to maintain
controlled pressure of a radial lip seal on a shaft and to
compensate for lip wear, changes in volume of stiffness of the
elastomer caused by the fluid, and the effect of temperature
changes and time.
Other uses include small motor belts and electrical
SPEC garter springs are engineered and manufactured to provide a
consistant and reliable product. They feature high initial tension
to provide a constant load and a special tapered end to assure a
strong connection and a continious near uniform body diameter.
SPEC garter springs are available in a variety of standard lengths
which can be trimmed at the 'not-conical' part and assembled to
meet your required inside diameter.
