Throughout the Netherlands, Muntproever.nl sells coin-operated machines, coin lockers, and PayMatic solutions via a webshop. After inserting a coin, the Tameson solenoid valves ensure that the device in question works. Hicham Ben Youssef, the owner of Muntproever.nl, explains how the cooperation came about and what function the valves have in the machines.
New in our range
An o-ring is a rubber ring that lies between two components that need to be joined gas-tight or liquid-tight. By compressing the ring, a seal is formed. O-rings are suitable for various applications: SAE flanges, cutting ring fittings, ORFS fittings, garden hose fittings, and more. Tameson has o-ring kits available for major metric or imperial sizes.
Rotary shaft seals
Shaft seals are used for sealing rotating machine parts. They consist of a rubber part with a metal reinforcement ring and a coil spring. They are available in NBR and FKM suitable for different rotational speeds. NBR is suitable for speeds up to 14 m/s, while FKM is suitable up to 37 m/s. There are three basic types based on the intended use: A, B, and C.
Gaskets (rubber or metal) are often used between two surfaces because they deform and fill the space to form a seal and prevent leakage. They are often used with pressure gauges. Material and design greatly affect the function and price of the gasket. Gaskets made of hardened PVC are suitable for many standard applications. PTFE gaskets are recommended for aggressive media. Gaskets made of copper, aluminum or hydraulic gaskets with NBR inlay are mainly used for high pressure applications.
