Next Generation Skwezloc Concentric Locking Collar Design
The Skwezloc® concentric locking collar design first debuted in 1966. In the early 2000’s, more competitive designs with concentric locking collars were introduced.
These designs require Turned, Ground, and Polished (TG&P) shaft tolerances.
The Sealmaster® next generation Skwezloc® Concentric Locking Collar has been redesigned to accommodate “Commercial” Turned and Polished (T&P) shaft tolerances with improved lock reliability of TG&P shaft tolerances.
Features of the Next Generation Skwezloc® Locking Collar Design include:
- Innovative circumferential groove on the inner ring bore that improves shaft grip
- Larger cap screw and collar for improved clamping force to the shaft
- Potential user cost reduction on shafting by specifying “Commercial” tolerances
- Same simple single screw installation
- Patented design
