Sealing Nuts

ZaGO determined the right seal nut design for the situation and the leak was resolved, said Harvey Rottenstrich, Lead Engineer at ZaGO.

ZaGO gave this leading OEM the optimal solution which was both practical and economical. ZaGO embedded Nitrile rubber into a hex nut as the perfect alternative to the conventional hex nut the OEM was previously using. Testing demonstrates that ZaGo Seal Nuts offer a significant advantage over regular nuts reducing emissions as it seals from inside the heater housing. Other advantages include that it comes in a simple, one piece design, is available in metric or standard sizes, is available in a wide range of rubbers and that it seals both the threads and the full circumference of the nut.
