SEALING PLUG

Efficiently and permanently seal holes.

High performance, low cost

Reliable and reproducible with SEALING PLUG plug seals.

In many applications, hydraulic or gaseous media flows through channels and holes. For manufacturing reasons, these are drilled from the outside and then have to be resealed. SEALING PLUG models can be used here because they can withstand operating pressures of up to 500 bar.

Method / principle

The SEALING PLUG is a two-part all-metal component which works according to the push/pull expansion principle. It is used to permanently close and seal holes in pneumatic and hydraulic components and systems.

Applications

SEALING PLUGS can be used to control and regulate all kinds of flow. Typical applications include, for example, motors, power and drive trains, chassis and brake systems, steering and injection components as well as various hydraulic applications.

Detailed description

 

Simply sealed!

SEALING PLUG models with a ball function according to the push-expansion principle. The ball is pushed into the sleeve, causing it to expand. SEALING PLUG models with a mandrel and PULLPLUGS™ function according to the pull-expansion principle. The mandrel / pin is pulled into the sleeve, causing it to expand. All versions of the SEALING PLUG feature serrations on the outside of the sleeve, which embed the SEALING PLUG in the installation material as it expands.

The easy installation into the existing drill hole makes this method particularly efficient as there is no need to cut a thread. Furthermore, additional sealants are not required.

SEALING PLUGs can be used to regulate and control all types of flow as they can withstand operating pressures of up to 500 bar.
