New Shaft Coatings For OHLAs
Zero-Max has developed an option for its overhung load adapters (OHLA) designed for operating in environments where corrosion, particularly in the seal area, is a challenge. The OHLAs are now available with a corrosion resistant finish for the shaft that the company said also improves the wear characteristics. The option is targeted toward oil drilling equipment, mining equipment and vehicles, forestry machinery, marine equipment and off-highway vehicles. The process is offered at a substantial savings when compared to stainless steel shafting, Zero-Max said.
Designed for either face or foot mounting, standard OHLAs are available in over 50 models with input bore sizes that range from 5/8 in. to 31/2 in . SAE A, B, C, D, E and F mount are available with either two- or four-bolt mounting flanges. Shaft variations include splined, threaded, tapered and extended output shafts, all now available with the special corrosion protection process. Special input bores and housing modifications are also available, the company said.
