High pressure springs designed to save space

The specialist range of high pressure springs from Lee Spring are designed to save space, which enables compact product design by combining an unusual range of performance characteristics to suit small applications with high loading requirements. They match small physical size with high force capacity operating over short distance and small deflections.

The high pressure springs feature heavier than normal gauge wire, in a smaller than normal diameter compression spring configuration.

They are the compression spring of choice for ball detent fixtures, quick change tooling, switches, safety relief valves, electrical contact actuation, vice clamps, toys and many production line fittings or accessories.

The comprehensive catalogue range is offered in many ex-stock sizes with options of 300, 400 and 500psi pressure ratings. They are only available in type 17-7 PH stainless steel with preset, and are shot peened and passivated for enhanced performance.

This ‘High Pressure’ compression series include selections to work inside holes from 3.18-25.40mm (0.125-1”). They are available in a range of free lengths, starting at 6.35mm (0.250") up to 50.80mm (2").
