A Quick Look at the Koenig Expander Sealing Plug

While the Koenig Expander Sealing Plug is available in an array of materials, they all share one thing in common — exceptional versatility. No matter the substrate, the Koenig Expander works to permanently resist even the most extreme pressures and loads.

  1. Designed for use in base materials of high and low hardness (up to 450 bar pressure), anchorage and expansion of the sleeve in the hole wall in the MB Series is achieved by pressing the ball into the sleeve. 
  2. The CV Series Expander plugs are offered in inch sizes, metric sizes, as well as in different surface treatments and materials. Anchorage and expansion of sleeve in hole wall are also attained by pressing the ball into the sleeve. 
  3. Using the tension/expansion concept, the LK Series is perfect for lower pressure applications (max 60 bar). Once sufficient force is achieved, the expanding element instinctively breaks off at the preset breaking point. 
  4. Suitable for use in high-pressure applications (up to 500 bar) and in light metals, the SK Series also functions based on the tension/expansion concept — where breaking off of the expanding element occurs after achieving sufficient force. 
  5. Suitable for lower pressures, the versatile press-fit and anchoring concept of the LP Series utilizes a conical press-in sleeve. In the installation process, it adapts to the bore while the exterior serration bites into the bore wall.  

The Versatility of the SFC Koenig Expander Tool

The Koenig Expander was originally engineered for use in plugging hydraulic assemblies. Today, this cutting-edge plug is the established and the preferred solution for sealing and flow control in hydraulic systems across a vast expanse of industries and applications, including:

  • Braking systems 
  • Suspension systems
  • Engines
  • Gearboxes
  • Transmission
  • Fuel injection systems
  • Steering systems
