Type RSCI is a centrifugal lift off sprag type freewheel with the inner race rotating. Only the inner race is designed for freewheeling.
The RSCI is a higher torque capacity version of the RSBI type. Please refer to RSBI type for basic information. Further information valid for both types continue hereafter. The RSBI and RSCI types accept all types of lubricant currently used in power transmission equipment. It is Possible to mount these freewheels directly in gear-boxes without separate lubrication.
An oil mist is generally sufficient. Grease lubrication may be acceptable if the unit works mostly in overrunning condition, as on E-motors.
Centering of the outer race must use the inner bore. The centering spigot must not contact the sprag cage.
