Zygology offers Avseal XT breakstem plugs for hydraulic systems

Avseal XT is a new sealing system said to offer rapid and cost-effective sealing of high-pressure hydraulics applications that provide a permanent, reliable metal seal that’s capable of withstanding pressures of over 1,600 bar, and working pressures up to 500 bar.

A cost analysis study by Stanley Engineered Fastening discovered that when compared to an existing, alternative sealing method, utilising Avseal breakstem plugs reduces the number of sealing processes, increasing productivity by 600% and reducing labour costs by €20,833.33 (when comparing like-for-like fastener costs at €20,000).

Avseal XT blind breakstem plugs are installed into plain drilled cross holes in hydraulic manifolds and valve blocks to provide a permanent metal seal.

The Avseal XT range suits holes of sizes from 5mm up to 10mm. It is designed specifically for the sealing of high-pressure hydraulics in industrial control gear, ground transportation, agricultural equipment and many other sectors.

Sales director Richard Avery said: “Avseal XT offers higher performance than existing sealing plugs, making it an ideal choice for even the most demanding, high pressure hydraulic applications. The reliability of the Avseal XT system will reduce the possible catastrophic risk of sealing failure whilst also reducing assembly & labour costs.”
