Do you need to replace an existing slip ring?  Not only does United Equipment Accessories (UEA) design new slip rings, we also can design them to retrofit or replace an existing slip ring.  UEA can often provide a less expensive solution to fit the application’s requirements.

What does the design process look like?

UEA will guide you through the process by asking you more about the slip ring that you need replaced. To begin, a UEA engineer will ask questions regarding your current slip ring. The more information that you can provide, the better!

Here are questions to consider for your replacement slip ring:

  • What is the slip ring’s application? We also need to know how you are using your slip ring and its purpose.  
  • What is the RPM or rotating speed of the application and slip ring?
  • What are environmental and sealing requirements for the slip ring? Will the slip ring need to protected against corrosion, dust, salty air, rain, explosive environment, etc.?
  • What is the size of slip ring? UEA engineers will need to know the diameter and length requirements and limitations to ensure that it fits in your application.
  • What specifications do you require? How many circuits are needed and what are the amps, voltage, and usage requirement of each circuit?
  • How will the slip ring be mounted? Upright, inverted, or horizontal?  
  • Does it have an existing shaft?  If so, what are the dimensions?  
  • Does it have a through shaft or end of shaft mount? A rotary union mount? (If so, what is the swivel hole inner diameter?) A mounting tube? A flange? (If so, what is the flange inner diameter and hole pattern?)
  • What style of cover is needed? (PVC, spun aluminum, dome, wrap, etc.)
  • Does the slip ring require a center harness or brush harness?
  • Does your application require any accessories such as a position sensor or pneumatic swivel?
  • What is the estimated annual quantity?

With this information, our engineers can put together a replacement slip ring to fit your requirements, even if the original slip ring wasn’t originally manufactured by UEA. Contact us today to start designing your replacement slip ring.
