Rotating seals - Vrings
De front seal / V-ring
The front seal is an elastomeric axial seal for rotating shafts and bearings. It rotates with the shaft and seals axially against a stationary counter plane perpendicular to the shaft. This type of seal is widely used in a variety of applications and has proven to be reliable and effective against dust, dirt, water and oil splashes and other media.
The ring consists of three parts:
(a) The sealing body, installed with shaft interference
(b) The hinge, which acts as a suspended connection between the body and the lip.
(c) The conical and flexible sealing lip that provides the actual dynamic seal against the counter surface.
