|For the lifetime of the machine – AFM 38 Cover and Casing Gaskets for Stationary Gearboxes and Gear Motors
||Gaskets for drives on paper machines, conveyor belts, cranes, escalators, and many other types of equipment must stay in service for the entire lifetime of the machine – despite low bolt force,flexurally weak components (diecast aluminum),
and milled surfaces with relatively high roughness. At the same time, these gaskets must cope´with nonuniform distribution of surface-pressure and partial very low surface pressure as well as they resist all types of gear oil, synthetic oils (polyglycol oils or ester oils), and temperatures as high as 150 °C.
|The solution from VICTOR REINZ
Preferred by experienced engineers and systems operators. AFM 38 is a soft, compressible, and adaptable aramide-fiber-based gasket material that exhibits high chemical resistance to all gear moils. Even with low surface pressure, AFM 38 has a high sealing effect and retains good creep stability under load (low relaxation behavior) despite its soft structure. What design-oriented engineers really value: AFM 38 is silicon-free, so it can be painted.
