Canted coil spring for oilfield connecting
This high-force canted coil spring is a mechanical fastening component for mating critical parts with controllable insertion and removal forces.
The Enforcer high-force canted coil spring is a mechanical fastening component that gives oil and gas equipment designers the ability to make critical parts with precisely controllable insertion and removal forces from 500 to more than 10,000 lbs over multiple service cycles. The spring can be piston or housing mounted. It can also be engineered with relatively low-insertion force to simplify the reattachment of parts. The spring comes in a variety of materials, including stainless steels and nickel-based alloys. When made from a nickel-based alloy wire material with a diameter of 0.031 in with a 1-in ID. the spring demonstrated an initial removal force of more than 2000 lbs.
