Did you know that although sealing plugs account for less than 1% of the bill-of-materials cost, sealing failures lead to extremely high follow-up costs? Failures can result in accidents, personal and equipment damage, and recalls.
Avseal Sealing plugs from Stanley Engineered Fastening are suitable for the fast and safe sealing of boreholes in applications where fluids such as water, oils, and gases are used for control, lubrication, and thermal management. These sealing plugs significantly improve quality and safety in demanding applications and simplify borehole preparation and assembly.
The aluminum sleeve expands radially within the borehole creating a secure seal without damaging the internal surface of the component. The Avseal setting process is faster and more reliable than other methods. It requires no torque adjustment on mounting tools and no thread generation. It also offers significant overall cost savings compared to conventional thread plugs.
Avseal sealing plugs can be processed manually with handheld devices or automatically. Manual setting devices enable fast and reliable assembly in prototype construction and in small series. The automated processing of Avseal sealing plugs in high-volume applications is carried out in a safe process with maximum system availability with components from the VIKING device series.
Stanley Engineered Fastening supports users with information on borehole design. The company can check the specific accessibility to the setting point and provide advice on plant planning. Its engineers are also available for static and dynamic leak tests in application-related structures, even under climatic conditions to support the validation of development results.
