Katy Spring is a custom manufacturer of springs made from carbon steel, stainless steel, music wire and titanium, and specifically, chemical industry springs made from .125 stainless steel.
.125 stainless steel chemical industry compression springs are an open coil helical spring that offers resistance to compressive force applied axially. Compression springs are commonly coiled as a constant diameter cylinder.
About Chemical Industry Springs
Stainless steels are iron-base alloys containing 10.5% or more chromium and are engineered with good corrosion resistance, strength, and fabrication characteristics. They can readily meet a wide range of design criteria – load, service life, low maintenance, etc.
When Making Your Selection, Consider Four Elements
Chemical industry springs must hold up to environmental factors.
1. Corrosion or Heat Resistance — the primary reason for specifying stainless.
2. Mechanical Properties — strength at room, elevated, or low temperature.
3. Fabrication Operations – how the product is to be made (forging, machining, forming, welding).
4. Total Cost – consider not only material and production costs, but the life cycle cost including the cost-saving benefits of a maintenance-free product having a long life expectancy.
Stainless spring wire offers high corrosion resistance properties and good tensile strength; chemical industry springs can be used in furnaces and boilers and provide a combination of corrosion resistance, weldability, and formability. Springs for the chemical industry include conical compression springs that are open-coil helical springs wound or constructed to oppose compression along the axis of wind. Helical compression springs are the most common metal spring configuration and offer resistance to linear compressing.
Many variables characterize a corrosive environment such chemical exposure and chemical concentration, atmospheric conditions, temperature, time, etc. Therefore, it is difficult to select which alloy to use without knowing the exact nature of the environment. Our professional staff will expertly guide you through a consultation and gladly assist with your order. We offer the highest quality products at competitive prices, including compression springs, extension springs, torsion springs, die springs, and wire forms.
