High Pressure Plug for Venting Applications
WESTBROOK, CT - The Lee Company has designed a new version of it's A.F.O. (Axial Force Only) Plug to incorporate an O-ring for additional sealing in critical oil tool applications. This Dual Sealing A.F.O. Plug is designed to vent air from a product when filling it with hydraulic oil or to release trapped high pressure gas.
The Dual Sealing A.F.O. Plug is designed to be both removable and reusable. The plug features a floating seal that self-aligns to allow for threaded holes that are not concentric with the through hole. As a result of the plug's two-piece construction, the seal does not rotate during installation, thus preventing galling of the seat. Manufactured from corrosion resistant 303 and 15-5 stainless steel, the plug is designed to withstand pressures up to 56,000 psi and temperatures to 600°F.
