In this article, we will discuss Viton oil seals. Oil Seals are components responsible for maintaining the tightness of fluids flowing through a conduit. In other words, they prevent the liquid or gas flowing inside a pipe from escaping at the ends.



Why Viton oil seals are widely used:



Viton rubber is a material with a wide range of physical and chemical properties that make it ideal for many applications. Among its many advantages, Viton has excellent acid resistance, making it suitable for use in aggressive chemical environments.



Characteristics of Viton:



Viton is a fluorinated rubber foam manufactured using a variety of thermal acid vapors. Viton has very high heat resistance, capable of withstanding extreme temperatures of up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

It has elastic and flexible properties, and its high elasticity means that Viton can stretch more than common rubber. It also has high abrasion resistance and is waterproof. Viton is resistant to oils, solvents, and hydrocarbons, and it does not degrade or soften when exposed to these materials.

These qualities make Viton a suitable material for seals and gaskets in various applications, including engines, pumps, and mechanical equipment.





Lifespan of Viton oil seals:




The lifespan of a Viton seal is typically 5 to 10 years. This duration may vary depending on the conditions in which the seal is used.
