V-Seal Types

DESCRIPTION

The V-SEAL is an all elastomer axial seal for shafts and bearings. It seals axially against a counterface. This type of seal has been used widely for several applications and has proved to be reliable and effective against dust, dirt, water and oil splash and other media.

The ring consist of three parts:

a- The seal body, installed with interference to the shaft.

b- The hinge, acting as a sprung connection between the body and the lip.

c- The conical self adjusting lip which provides the actual dynamic sealing against the counterface.

The counterface can be the outside of the bearing cap, a washer or any suitable metal pressing.
