Labyrinth Sealing Rings

At IEC, we stock a wide range of FEY Labyrinth sealing rings suitable for static and rotating applications. They offer outstanding sealing with little gap width and the special design produces little friction thus reducing internal wear and heat.

Labyrinth sealing rings are perfect for use in hot environments up to 700oC and are effective in excluding fluid, dirt and dust from components. Sealing rings are produced in standard steel and nickel-chrome steel depending on the requirements.

Bespoke sizes can be manufacture in small quantities cost effectively.

Bearing Lock Nuts

With over 30 years of experience, the manufacturer of bearing lock nuts has developed them to reduce the costs involved and simplify the assembly securing ball bearings.

The one piece lock nuts are produced at an ISO 9001 approved factory in sizes from M10 to M100 in materials including carbon, stainless steel and high carbon. They are a one piece component that works by the spring peening into the top of the nut keeping it in position.

Thin Section Bearings

We stock thin section ball bearings that are manufactured to solve a number of design problems such as space and weight limitations.

We offer thin section bearings with bore sizes from 1" to 40" and cross sections from 3/16" to 1" as well as custom designs. They are manufactured in an ISO 9001 and AS 9100 approved factory in materials including SAE 5100 and 440C steels and special materials to suit hostile environments.

Other specifications include:

  • Precision classes to ABEC 7 (ISO P4)
  • Radial, angular and 4-point contact versions
  • Shielded and sealed versions
  • Duplex and Super Duplex configurations

Safety Washers

Safety washers offer many advantages and are manufactured in the form of a disc spring. They are of trapezoidal cross section and are serrated on both sides, which mean that they can be used with almost any bolt or screw type.

The design of the Schnorr safety washers gives the advantage of security through mechanical and friction locking. They are available in two types:

  • Standard Type 'S'
  • Reinforced Type 'VS'
