Harsh environments, like marine and underwater applications, call for corrosion-resistant materials. Machines and components demand an exceptionally high resistance to corrosive elements and Belden products are designed to meet these strict requirements. From underwater oil field equipment to drinking water pumping systems and food processing applications, Belden’s Universal Joints and complete drive shaft assemblies are available in a variety of stainless steel grades. Various hub configurations, lubricants and additional protective measures, such as boots, are available for use in a wide range of corrosive environments.
To provide higher strength and improved wear resistance, Belden’s standard stainless steel joints have AISI 303 stainless steel yokes and AISI 416 steel pins and blocks. Standard single joints can be modified with a variety of stainless steel grades, including 304, 316, 17-4 and 15-5, to meet specific applications’ requirements. Diameters range from 1/2 " (13 mm) to 6" (153 mm) with a standard operating angle of 35°.
