The chevron set is a multi-part sealing set. This set is specially designed for up-and-down movements of plungers and axles. By adjusting the material, profile and number of parts, the seal can be perfectly matched to the application. Ridderflex produces the set custom-made.
The set always consists of a set of rings. We supply these in different materials:
- PTFE (Teflon® virgin)
- PTFE glass 15% or 25%
- PTFE carbon or
Because of the good chemical resistance of these materials, the sealing sets are mainly applied in the chemical industry and equipment industry.
Structure of the chevron set
Our standard set is composed in the following way:
|Top ring||PTFE or PTFE glass|
|Bottom ring||PTFE or PTFE glass|
The number of middle rings of the set depends on the dimension of the stuffing box. The profile of the rings will also be adapted to the application. Special high-pressure sets, for example, are amongst the possibilities.
Our specialists will gladly assist you in choosing the right material. Please contact our sales department.
