Washdown shaft collars from Ruland help protect hygienic equipment from bacterial contamination. Washdown shaft collars feature a patent pending assembly containing a type 303 stainless steel shaft collar, a two-piece housing made from FDA compliant materials, and three O-rings with NSF H1 registered lubricant. Applications in the food processing, packaging, and medical industries benefit from the reduced risk of bacterial growth.

Hot spots on traditional shaft collars such as saw cuts, screw pockets, and surface imperfections may allow bacteria to grow and spread within the system. These spots can be difficult to clean and are not always accessible. Washdown shaft collars eliminate these hot spots and provide a smooth uninterrupted surface for easy cleaning, making them a safer alternative to standard shaft collars.
