Many applications require corrosion resistant universal joints to assure sanitation or to avoid premature oxidation or deterioration. Curtis’ 303 grade stainless steel u-joints are particularly important, for example, to industries that use food processing equipment, and for machinery that comes in contact with corrosive chemicals or is exposed to water for long periods. Furnace applications also benefit from stainless steel, which better withstands high temperatures and other environmental extremes. Curtis stocks 303 stainless in all 14 sizes from 3⁄8″ to 4″. Stainless steel grades 304, 316 and others available by special order.
Universal joint hub modifications are available per customer specifications, which include but may not be limited to bores, keyways, set screw holes, square holes and hex holes. Contact the Curtis sales department for more information.
