Statotherm V Cover seal V881-…


Statotherm V cover seals V881 (self-sealing) consist of pure graphite rings (purity > 99%) with an embedded stainless steel reinforcement. They are used in particular in applications with large gaps and high pressures. For example, Statotherm V cover seals V881 are used successfully in power stations at high temperatures and with diameters of up to 1,000 mm.


  • Especially suitable for sealing large gaps
  • Easy to assemble and disassemble
  • No damage to the sealing surfaces
  • Long service life
  • Do not harden
  • Optimized sealing result
  • Minimum wear of the contact surface

Functional description

Design and ordering information
The design of the cover seal depends on the pressure and dimensions. Please specify the operating conditions and profile shape with any enquiries or orders (example: pressure in bar, diameter d1 and d2, profile shape I, A or R).


Minimum surface pressure:
The seal and preloading are generally created by the working pressure, but there is a minimum surface pressure that must be achieved when the seal is installed.
