V-rings or V-seals, are fitted directly on to a shaft against a counter-face, which is at right angles to the shaft. They are made entirely of elastomer, giving them high elasticity. This makes them easy to install and flexible. Depending on the size, V-rings can be stretched over other components such as flanges or pulleys.
They can also give good sealing in case the axle rotates eccentrically; in this case, the maximum displacement of the axle depends on the maximum permissible displacement of the V-rings from the counterface.
Our V-rings, available in BUNA ‘N’ and Viton, come from TTO.
