Replacement Metric V Packing Sets on Foreign Hydraulic Rams for the Automotive Industry

An automotive customer based in Detroit, MI approached Potter Associates, Inc. about supplying them with correctly sized metric V Packing Seals. The client's supplied print and 2D CAD drawings stated that the seals needed to be made of homogeneous Fluoroelastomer, and each set was to measure 28" ID x 30" OD x 1" thick material and 3-1/2" high. We were able to supply our customer with V packing seals that are resistant to abrasions, air, acids, aliphatic and aromatic solutions, alkalies, hydrocarbons, phosphate esters, water glycol and water in oil. The seals can also operate within temperatures of -20°F to 400°F and feature multiple sealing lips and a hinged design. On top of all these amazing features, we also provided the customer with a seal that eliminates failures and blowouts and reduces installation, inventory and maintenance costs. To learn more about these V seals see the details below. To learn more about everything Potter Associates, Inc. can offer you, please contact us.
