Rotor Clip manufactures retaining rings and wave springs suited to the harsh conditions inherent in washdown-duty motors. The company’s stainless retaining rings are made primarily from 15-7 MO steel, while its line of single-and multi-turn wave springs are made primarily from 17-7 PH. Both grades offer excellent strength and hardness, fatigue properties and corrosion resistance, making them resistant to the chemical solutions used in washdown applications. Carbon spring steel, when left unplated, is highly susceptible to corrosive forces, and retainers made from this material require corrosion-resistant plating.
