Sealing Against Dust and Splash Water

V-rings serve as lip seals or flinger rings. They are used to seal against dust, dirt, grease, oil or water splashes from the outside. The V-ring rotates with the shaft while sealing axially against the counter surface. V-rings are mainly used in combination with other seals, like radial shaft seals, but also as pre-sealing element for bearings. Being available in different types, V-rings provide high flexibility in usage for pressureless operations. Typical applications for V-rings are rolling mills, farm machinery and electric motors.

Benefits at a Glance

  • Easy mounting
  • Flexible use
  • Reduced running friction with increasing speed and therefore good lifetime
  • Low requirements for the surface quality of the counter surface
  • Compensation for slight axial movements
  • Very good price-performance ratio
  • Suitable for many industrial applications

Important note: Dichtomatik products comply with common industrial standards and therefore are suitable for many applications excluding safety-critical ones like Automotive. Premium Freudenberg products are the right choice for all applications ensuring highest quality and safety standards and therefore optimal total cost of ownership.

V Rings

Choose the Right Product

Out of Four Types 

  • VA: standard design
  • VS: with reinforced stiffening body element and beveled back
  • VL: thin profile
  • VE: for large diameters

V-rings made of NBR (temp.: -40 to +100 °C) and FKM (temp.: -20 to +200 °C) show a good chemical resistance to many greases and mineral oils. For harsh environmental conditions or extensive effects of earth or gravel masses, the use of axial seals with metal casing (VRM01 or VRM02) is recommended. Other materials and designs, e.g. for use with tension band, are available upon request.

Please note that resistances, pressures and temperatures are mutually influenced by various parameters.
