Chesterton 5500 Flange Bolt Disc Springs
Flange Live-Loading System for High Reliability

  

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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.

Manufactured from a specialized stainles​s steel alloy, Chesterton 5500 Flange Bolt Disc Springs deliver high performance against stress corrosion cracking.
