Coxreels announced a seal upgrade to the nitrile 1.5-inch and 2-inch inline swivels with advanced multi-lobe sealing technology.
The enhanced seals are designed to maximize seal integrity, improve overall seal performance and maximize seal life. In-depth testing has shown the performance of the multi-lobe seals exceeds that of the standard O-ring, cup and T-seals for large capacity fluid handling and high volume delivery in both high- and low-pressure applications. Additionally, the new seal geometry has a better resistance to compression set, which is a leading cause of premature seal failure.
