The Hallite 11 is a vee pack rod seal for medium duty applications offering excellent performance and long life even under difficult operating conditions such as pressure surges, vibration and some misalignment. The seal consists of a male and female adaptor and 5 vee rings. The male adaptor is usually manufactured from polyacetal but some of the larger sizes use rubberised fabric. It has grooves across one face to ensure equal pressure to the sealing edges of the vee ring.
All sizes have three rings manufactured from rubberised fabric because this has strength and durability and permits an oil film to lubricate the other parts of the seal. Two rubber vee rings are supplied between the rubberised fabric vee rings (up to and including 140mm diameter) to aid low pressure sealing.
The female adapter uses a hard rubberised fabric to suppor the vee rings and protect them from extrusion damage. At high pressure the lips of the adaptor acts as a secondary seal.
The proportions of the range have been determined to give a satisfactory performance when used with the recommended operating conditions.
