Radial Inch Rings

RE - Reinforced Radial Inch Rings RE
Inch Reinforced- A reinforced version of the E ring which will accommodate higher thrust loadings and RPM. These rings function in the same size grooves as regular E/MRE rings, so that you can change from one to the other without re-engineering the application. Size Ranges: RE--.094-.562 Inches; MRE-4mm-15mm.

E - External Radial Inch Rings E
External Inch- Perhaps the most popular and widely used radial retaining ring is the "E" (so named because it is shaped like the letter "E"). Three prongs make contact with the bottom of the groove and provide a shoulder for effective retention of assemblies. Size Ranges: E--.040-1.375 Inches; DE—1.0mm-42.0mm; ME--.1mm-25mm.

C - External Crescent Radial Inch Rings C
External Crescent Inch-  Ideal for low clearance applications where radial installation is preferred. Size Ranges: C--.125-2.0 Inches; DC—3.0mm-55.0mm; MC-.3mm-55mm.

LC - External Interlocking Radial Inch Rings LC
External Interlocking- The LC ring is produced in two identical halves. The ends interlock into a groove on a shaft and, once assembled, are dynamically balanced. As a result, they are particularly effective at retaining assemblies with extremely high rotational speeds. Size Range: .469-3.375 Inches.

PO/POL - External Radial Inch Rings PO/POL
External Inch- The PO ring features wide "ears" (resembling those of a poodle, thus the name) which offer extra retention surface against the retained part. PO rings also come in thinner sizes as a standard series of rings known as POL. Size Ranges: PO--.156-2.0 Inches; POL--.156-1.0 Inches.
