Greater Corrosion Resistance

14 March 2013

Achieving high levels of corrosion resistance for application in a wide range of industries including the food, pharmaceuticals, shipbuilding, chemical, textile, paper and photographic sectors, Poggi’s latest design of the A.5000 Series, AISI 316 stainless steel (Gleason Spiral Bevels) Right Angle Gearboxes matches the external, flange, connections and shaft dimensions of the A.4000 Aluminium Series, making them fully interchangeable. They are available through Francis and Francis.


Selection of AISI 316 in preference to the more commonly used AISI 304 stainless steel results in superior corrosion resistance. AISI 316 offers
high levels of corrosion resistance in most atmospheric conditions – both normal and saline environments, such as sea water – as well as a variety of other chemical substances – and is particularly resistant to foods, where conditions are usually critical for most other steels.
