The service life of mechanical components can decrease rapidly under aggressive ambient conditions. This is also true of clevises in accordance with DIN 71752 / ISO 8140. These important linking elements used in many fields are, in addition to attacks from external sources, also exposed to the tensile, compressive, folding and shear forces generated by the application.
In order to prevent this shortening of service life, the clevises are now even better adapted to the installation environment, since clevises/clevis joints are now available in a new variant of stainless austenitic chrome-nickel-molybdenum steel 1.4404 (316S11, Aisi 316L).
This material has outstanding corrosion-resistance properties in natural environments (urban and rural atmospheres, seawater-resistant) and in industrial applications with moderate chloride and acid concentrations. The food and chemical industries (sulphuric and phosphoric acids, organic acids) also tend to turn to this material, which even after welding is insensitive to intercrystalline corrosion.
As of now clevises (short version) in the sizes M4 to M16 in material 1.4404 (316S11, Aisi 316L) are directly available from stock. Naturally the matching bolt, washer and cotter pin are also stocked.
mbo Osswald offers its customers, with an extremely large assortment of different linking elements, a wide selection for a multitude of possible applications. In addition to steel and stainless steel, linking elements can also be manufactured from duplex steel for special applications.
In addition, a team of experts is available which is geared towards satisfying special customer-specific requirements as well. This team can both working according to drawing specifications and implement an application-specific solution together with the customer.
