Shafts

Flexible Shaft Series

GI Industries introduced the FS series flexible shaft in 1996 which was an instant winner. All GI shafts are made in the USA, to high quality standards, inexpensive and readily available. GI FS shafts are constructed of materials that effectively deal with wet or corrosive environments.

The FS Series has been redesigned and improved to be 40 percent stronger and are field repairable. The new design has the holding power of more than 200 pounds of exerted force and has an open architecture which makes it available for any tube cleaning machine in the market.
