|UTEX® Industries has significantly increased the sealing capabilities of standard v-packings with the creation of our "ASF" Design Flat-Back Seal Ring. This design works extremely well in applications where high pressures are present. Although designed originally for reciprocating pumps, the "ASF" Design Flat-Back Seal Rings are now being used successfully in centrifugal and hydraulic applications.
The secret to the success of this design is the amount of material used in each ring, combined with engineering angles proven in high pressure situations. The extra material gives the "ASF" ring greater anti-extrusion ability plus over two (2) times the normal leakage path of a standard design v-ring. Another advantage of this design is the need for one adapter only. The flat top portion of the ring needs no special shaped adapter to make it fit a standard stuffing box, while also eliminating high stress caused by standard v-shaped adapters. The use of our "ASF" ring also allows you to use one sealing ring in the place of multiple ring setups of the past. All of these features combine to make the "ASF" Design Flat-Back Seal Ring one of the most versatile packings on the market today.
The "ASF" Design Flat-Back Seal Rings are available in many standard materials and can be supplied in a wide range of special compounds to work in your specific application. Contact Utex or your local distributor for more information.
