V-seals and V-rings Keep Out Contaminants

All rubber V-seals axial shaft metal cased V-ring seals

Versatile V-seals and V-rings are one piece rubber seals mounted on a shaft to keep water, dirt and other materials from entering bearing housings. The V-seal's self-adjusting lip rotates with the shaft against the counter face bearing housing or shaft collar to produce the dynamic sealing. The rotating peripheral shaft speed causes contaminants to be blocked while dirt and water are not able to attach to the flexible sealing lip.

V-seals are formed into different profiles based on the shaft size to be sealed, available mounting space, as well as the applications. 

V-seals work well for greases, water, mineral oils and acids and use a variety of materials for sealing specific applications. Usually constructed of Nitrile rubber (-40°F  to 212°F/-40°C to 100°C) or FKM fluoroelastomers (-15°F  to 390°F/-26°C to 199°C), V-seals can be made to order with special sizes or configurations. V-rings are easily installed by stretching over flanges for minimal disassembly and offer extemely low heat build-up and low torque drag. The V-seals do not need excessive countersurface preparation or expense to create optimal sealing.

V-rings offer:

  • Long-term durability
  • Single-element sealing
  • Excellent grip strength
  • Shaft seal protection against contaminants
