SEALING FOR ROTATING EQUIPMENT: V-Rings
This is a lip seal made entirely of elastomer that rotates with the shaft, without the need for a specific housing with or without metal reinforcement. The lip rests on a surface perpendicular to the shaft, protecting the equipment from dust and metal particles and rejecting splashes of other contaminants.
V-rings are available in NBR, FPM and CR.
The V-ring centrifuges dust and liquid splashes and expels foreign matter from the seal area.
- As a deflector to prevent contamination of your rotating machine.
- As a secondary seal to avoid contamination of conventional seals.
- As a seal in bearings with or without a protective labyrinth.
V-rings without metal reinforcement are manufactured in four different profiles (VA, VS, VL, VE), with the VA profile and the VS profile being the most commonly used.
The V-rings with metal reinforcement in chrome steel are MSC01 and MSC02.
