Springs and fasteners are often vital parts of equipment operating in extreme conditions. Environments such as underwater or outdoors in intense temperatures rely on the durability of specialised machinery and components.
Lee Spring products are designed to endure tough conditions experienced by industry sectors such as Aerospace, Power Stations and Nuclear Industries, Valve Manufacturing, Medical, Offshore and Sub-Sea Industries, Turbine Manufacture and General Engineering, where equipment is at risk of deterioration.
“Working in a harsh environment in this case could mean anything from equipment required underwater, battling saltwater corrosion, to 35,000 feet up in the air contending with high wind speeds and low temperatures” says Chris Petts, Managing Director of Lee Spring UK.
Lee Spring offers a range of ‘superalloy’ springs and fasteners, made from nickel and cobalt, which can withstand high temperatures and pressure and are designed to be resistant to corrosion and oxidation. These are particularly beneficial to sub-sea and offshore applications where equipment is at risk of corrosion from salt water, wind and rain.
The Lee Spring nickel-cobalt alloy ‘Monel’ includes copper and iron, making it corrosion and acid resistant, perfect for applications involving acids and highly corrosive substances. The Lee Spring ‘Nimonic’ alloy is designed to withstand high temperatures and pressure, which is beneficial to the mining industry.
Lee Spring offers custom engineering in spring and fastener design in a range of tough materials.
The new Lee Spring catalogue is available to order now and includes a comprehensive range of nearly 20,000 stock springs, including die springs, torsion springs, compression springs, extension springs, and REDUX™ wave springs, as well as Plastic Composite™ springs and Bantam™ Miniature springs.
