V-Ring Seal is an all-rubber seal that seats directly on the
shaft and seals axially against a counterface, housing, seal
case or similar surface.
Designed with a long flexible lip, the seal acts like an
axial slinger. It can retain heavy lubricants and is highly
effective in excluding contaminants. The V-Ring can be used
as the primary seal or as a secondary back-up seal.
Because it is all rubber and very elastic, it can be stretched
over flanges or other assemblies for positioning without any
unit disassembly. The V-Ring performs well in dry applications
and is capable of handling a greater amount of eccentricity
and misalignment than most radial lip type seals. Axial movement
should however not exceed the axial sealing range of the lip.
Each V-Ring can be used for a range of different shaft sizes.
In certain applications, V-Rings can handle up to 10 psi
on the body side only. V-Rings should not be used on shafts
mounted below sump level.
For greater fluid and heat resistance, LongLife V-Rings are
available. They can be readily identified by a purple dot
marked on the seal or by use of brown seal material.
