WALRing

Overview & Features

The WALRing fitting combines all the advantages of two-edge cutting rings with the WALFORM® captive seal concept – a system proven millions of times over – and reliable, user friendly assembly. The shoulder contour provides precisely defined support of the hydraulic tube behind the two cutting edges, ensuring lasting functional reliability even under high, dynamic pressure impulse and vibration loads. The clearly detectable force increase at the end of assembly reliably avoids both insufficient and excessive tightening – the most frequent causes of faults. The fixing of the support ring (patent pending) permits simple and unequivocal assembly control.

Features
