5500 Flange Bolt Disc Springs
Chesterton 5500 Flange Bolt Disc Springs are manufactured from a specialized stainless steel alloy. This material was chosen because it exhibits the best characteristics against stress corrosion cracking. Bolted, gasketed joints that are subjected to mechanical shock, pressure surges or thermal expansion and contraction are prone to leakage. Disc springs, because they are an elastic mechanical element, compensate for these factors by maintaining bolt force under these conditions.
