ower administration company Eaton – now a part of Danfoss Power Solutions (Sealing Technology, September 2021, page 2) – just lately expanded its product portfolio with the addition of the strong WALRINGplus delicate seal cutting ring system, optimised for thin-wall tubing.
Featuring a two-edge slicing ring, with further gentle sealing for both attainable leak paths, this tube fitting system allows easy, secure and repeatable meeting and dependable, leak-free operations.
It is designed to fulfill demanding requirements, involving hydraulic tube becoming in purposes including use in agriculture, building, industrial vehicles, discrete manufacturing, rail transportation and other industries.
xp2i is appropriate to be used with thin-walled tubes and, subsequently, helps efficient weight and gas reduction of cell machinery and shifting elements of stationary machinery.
Correct meeting is essential to tube becoming performance and WALRINGplus is designed to forestall excessive or insufficient tightening. A clear block-stop operate supplies a tangible torque enhance when the tip of an meeting is reached, so no torque or distance measurement is required.
In addition, a considerably decrease drive is needed to pull the chopping ring over the tube – making meeting simpler, faster and safer, while decreasing the danger of damage to the gentle seal. The O-ring groove position also enables frequent reassembly, with out affecting performance.
To eliminate the chance of leaks that can create costly harm and downtime, WALRINGplus also addresses their widespread root causes.
Soft sealing prevents leakages if: tubes or studs are barely scratched, the fluid temperature fluctuates or the retention drive is reduced. Problems attributable to low meeting torque additionally may be recognized earlier than the slicing ring is pulled from the tube – decreasing the risk of a catastrophic failure in utility.
The bespoke M-R7 machine further reduces meeting time and the effort required for WALRINGplus in addition to the chance of leaks. By automating the process of cutting-ring assembly and tube-forming, this machine helps guarantee optimum system performance while additionally decreasing the required torque and rotrotation.
Specifications of WALRINGplus: • steel chopping ring with Viton O-rings; • for tube sizes 6–42 mm; • complies with ISO 8434-1; • high burst-pressure exceeding 4:1 safety factor; • working pressure as much as 500 bar (L-series) and 800 bar (S-series); and • supports dry meeting with metal elements.
