Characteristics and performance
The Hallite 13 is a Vee pack rod seal for heavy duty applications offering excellent performance and long life even under difficult operating conditions such as pressure surges, vibration and some misalignment. The seal assembly consists of a male and female adaptor and 5 vee rings.
The male adaptor is usually manufactured form 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 vee rings manufactured from rubberised fabric because this has strength and durability and permits an oil film to lubricate the other parts of the seal. Some sizes are supplied with rubber vee rings between the rubberised fabric vee rings.
The female adaptor uses a hard rubberised fabric to support the vee rings and protect them from extrusion damage. At high pressure the lips of the adaptor act as a secondary seal.
