VR Radial lip seals

VR seals are specially designed to resist higher pressures than a classic oil seal. They are used with shaft velocities of maximum 40 m/s.

Advantages:

  • Secure sealing on unpaved and stainless steel shafts
  • No traces of damage on the surface
  • No need for treatment of the shaft surface (coat, temper, nitrate,…), nor the use of extra sleeves
  • Thanks to the tangential and radial tension on the lip seal, no pump effect is provided.
  • Low friction coefficient, low friction losses
  • Longer duration of life

The operating principle of the VR radical lip seals without spring, is that a rubber diaphragm over a steel back-up ring or a back-up ring made of another material is stretched, whereby the amount of tension is controlled scrupulously careful. The sealing lip is placed in a certain angle with respect to the diaphragm and can both be pointed inwards and outwards, depending on the direction of the assembly and the direction where the pressure will work on the seal.

The seal is obtained by the tangential and radial pre-stressed diaphragm. This provides a tight spring between the membrane and the lip seal. In addition, the tangential and radial forces of the lip seal neutralize the tear forces, which arise as a result of the rotation of the shaft. Vibrations and random static and dynamic eccentricities are nullified directly in the surroundings of the locking lips. The partial neutralization of the lip seal during the rotation of the shaft, and the belonging pump effect, is seldom occurred with the use of this type of seal.

Different comparative measurements have proved that the radial forces, required for a VR seal ring, is only 1/3rd to 1/4th of the radial force compared to the requirements of a spiral seal with a spring, to become the same sealing degree. Consequently it is possible to use this type of seal on unpaved and stainless shafts, without leaving any traces or grooves on the shaft. Even after 1000 hours of service, there are only some polish traces perceptible on the shaft.
