The Renold REGV Series Trapped Roller Freewheels are self-centering by means of plain bearings.
Torque is transmitted to the inner race via a key and the outer race via the torque arm. Shaft tolerance must be h6.
The primary use for the REGV freewheels is as a backstop. The freewheel should be fixed to the machine body by placing brackets on either side of the torque arm or by using a pin or bolt in the slot. Note that a clearance of 1% of slot width is needed between torque arm and brackets or slot and pin. If a bolt is used instead of a pin it must not apply any axial loads to the torque arm.

An alternative application would be indexing where a push rod is connected to the torque arm slot. Clearance between slot and pin must be 1% of slot width.
The REGV is supplied pre filled with grease and normally requires no further sealing.
