Clamp style shaft collars for food equipment

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Ruland manufactures clamp style shaft collars that are commonly used for guiding, spacing, stopping, mounting, and component alignment on food processing, packaging, and handling equipment.

Food equipment manufacturers are said to benefit from the controlled face to bore perpendicularity of the shaft collars which is critical when they are used as a load bearing face or for aligning components such as bearings or gears. All Ruland shaft collars are machined to a burr free finish that reduces places for bacteria to be trapped.

Clamp style shaft collars do not mar the shaft, have high holding power, and allow for simple positioning adjustments. They distribute compressive forces evenly around the shaft for a tight fit and improved holding power when compared to set screw collars. Two-piece styles offer in-place installation and disassembly, increased holding power, and are mated throughout manufacturing to ensure proper fit and alignment.

They are supplied with fastening hardware that tests beyond industry standards for maximum torque capabilities and holding power. All stainless steel hardware undergoes a surface treatment process to prevent galling. Delrin or plastic shaft collars can be used as a cost effective alternative to stainless steel at the expense of performance, and are supplied with stainless steel hardware for corrosion resistance.
