The service life of mechanical components can decrease rapidly under aggressive ambient conditions. This is also true of clevises in accordance with ISO 8140 / DIN 71752. These important linking elements used in many fields are, in addition to attacks from external sources, also exposed to the tensile, compressive, folding and shear forces generated by the application.
In order to prevent this shortening of service life, the clevises are now even better adapted to the installation environment, since clevises/clevis joints are now available in a new variant of stainless austenitic chrome-nickel-molybdenum steel 1.4404 (B.S. 316S11, Aisi 316L) and
material 1.4305 (B.S. 303S22, Aisi 303).
