Ruland has released 303 and 316 stainless steel shaft collars to meet the demanding needs of marine and subsea applications that are exposed to the harsh ocean environment. Applications found in AUVs, ROVs, seismic activity detection, tidal power and deep sea drilling equipment benefit from superior fit, finish, and holding power offered by Ruland shaft collars.
Type 303 stainless steel is best suited for above water applications where the shaft collar can be regularly cleaned while 316 stainless steel is best suited for subsea applications that require high levels of corrosion resistance. Ruland shaft collars are machined to a fine surface finish free of pits and other major imperfections that can lead to premature corrosion and failure. All material is sourced from carefully selected North American mills.
