A line of spiral retaining rings from Rotor Clip are designed to withstand the rigors and functional stresses placed on turbine components in the wind power industry by high wind speeds and other functional stresses. Ventus retaining rings feature a machined lughole that accommodates the company's V-Orbis tool to improve field installation and removal vs. traditionally designed spiral rings, which cannot easily be removed without damage to either the ring or application. Rings are constructed from high-carbon steel in various configurations to perform critical retention of bearings and other components and can be made up to 1000 mm (39 in) in diameter to suit the specific requirements of various wind power applications. Benefits include reduced maintenance and downtime.
