Materials

ACM (Polyacrylate)

Polymers containing ethyl acrylate (or butyl acrylate) have a small amount of monomer, which is necessary for cross-linking; ACM is a material with better heat resistance than NBR. It is often used for automatic gearboxes.

NBR (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber)

Nitrile rubber (NBR) is the general term for acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymer. The ACN content can vary between 18% and 50%. While the acrylonitrile content is important, the resistance to oil and fuel is more so. Conversely, the elasticity and compression set are not as good. The NBR has good mechanical properties and good wear resistance. However, its resistance to atmospheric agents and the ozone is relatively low.

Chemical compatibility

A "Chemical compatibility guide" catalogue can be downloaded from the Documentation section. You can also use our online "Chemical compatibility" tool free of charge.

These two tools give you the option of measuring the behaviour of our materials that come into contact with the majority of existing fluids. The data displayed is the result of rigorous testing of the ambient temperature and in consultation with previous publications. Test results are not fully representative due to the specific features of your application. The tests performed actually do not consider additives and impurities that may exist under the actual conditions of use, nor the potential elevation of temperatures. Other parameters can also alter the behaviour of our materials, such as the hardness, persistence, abrasion, etc. We therefore recommend performing your own tests to verify the compatibility of our materials according to your specific application. Our technical team can provide you with any additional information.

Installation Housing V'Ring - BECA 120VL

Loss of power

The sealing lip of a V'Ring exerts such a low pressure on the contact surface area that the loss of power resulting from it is also low. The variations in power loss depend on the circumferential speed as well as the diameter of the axis in rotation, as shown in the graph below. At speeds greater than 11.0 m/s, the sealing lip has a tendency to detach itself, as the centrifugal force is greater.

Frictional loss for V'Rings

Shaft design

Considering that the V'Ring is fitted and tightened by expansion on the shaft, it is driven into rotation with the shaft. The requirements of tolerances and surface conditions (Ra ≤ 3.2 µm) are relatively moderate. We recommend carefully selecting the size using the dimensional chart for applications in which power loss and V'Ring lifespan are important criteria. If the diameter of the shaft Ød1 overlaps two potential V'Ring choices, we recommend selecting the larger V'Ring. The tightness on the shaft will in fact reduce, like the contact pressure of the lip on the back.

Counter-face design

V'Ring back

Surface roughness
Roughness in Ra Circumferential speed v Media
0.40 µm - 0.80 µm > 10.0 m/s Oil, water
0.80 µm - 1.60 µm 5.0 m/s - 10.0 m/s Oil splashes, grease, water splashes
1.60 µm - 2.00 µm 1.0 m/s - 5.0 m/s Grease, dirt, water splashes
2.00 µm - 2.50 µm < 1.0 m/s Grease, dirt

The surface roughness must not have a Ra < 0.05 µm.

Flatness

The flatness of the counter-face is essential, even more so when rotation speeds are high. The maximum acceptable deviation is 0.40 mm for 100.00 mm.

Axial support

V'Ring axial support

Installing the V'Ring is recommended when the axial support is at full stop. This is also recommended for applications where tightening between the V'Ring and the shaft is relatively weak and where the circumferential speed will exceed 6.0 - 8.0 m/s.

The table below sets out the calculation method for the diameter of the support Ød2.
