Seals > V-Rings

V-Rings are elastomeric sealing devices designed to seal axially against a housing face.

  • V-rings available in NBR and FKM materials. FDA compliant material or other rubber compounds available on request.
  • V-Rings install on the shaft and rotate with it.
  • Predominantly used as an excluder against dirt, water, dust and other contaminants.
  • The V-ring inside diameter is undersized to the shaft for a snug fit.
  • Shaft surface speed is limited to 8 meters per second unless some form of clamping or holding device is applied to keep centrifugal forces from inhibiting performance.
