Climax shaft collars and couplings can be used in applications over a wide range of operating temperatures. The table below lists these ambient operating temperature ranges for our shaft collars and rigid couplings based on material.

STEEL – High Strength, Low Carbon Steel-40350
STAINLESS STEEL – Type 303 / Type 316-40350
ALUMINUM – Type 6061 – T651 or equivalent-40225
ACETAL – Delrin-10185

Note that the numbers listed in the table are ambient temperatures and are not applicable when the part is directly exposed to a heat source.  These values are ‘typical’ operating temperature ranges and are not a guarantee under all conditions. They are meant to be a guide and must be evaluated by the customer based on individual application. For applications where the shaft collar and/or rigid coupling would be subjected to temperatures outside the ambient operating temperature range presented above, please contact a Climax applications engineer.
