The history of composite bearings

Hydraulic seals and pneumatic seals are designed as per the cylinder working pressure, cylinder speed, operating temperature, working medium and application. The important functions of hydraulic seals includes preventing leakage, protecting the system from contamination and thus improving the life span of hydraulic systems. The softest -rings are 50 and 60 shore A and stretch more easily, exhibit lower breakout friction, seal better on rough surfaces, and need less clamping pressure than harder rings, For a given squeeze, the higher the durometer hardness of a ring, the greater is the associated friction. Multiple sealing lips. Available as single-acting and double-acting types, these seals can also be used with guide rings and back-up rings. Sealants, Seals, Gaskets and -rings are compulsories item for hydraulic components and systems. A rod wipers main function is to keep the rod and cylinder clean and free from foreign matter preventing premature failure. Also known as scraper seals, they are often used together with other sealing components to let a ram rod pass through the inner bore of a seal, while preventing leakage. And while we don’t perform cylinder repair, we do supply the seals necessary to replace your parts. Piston seals separate applied pressures between the piston and rod side during stroke movement and during the interim and final position. Wide range of materials available. The sealing force compensates for high-pressure to maintain a positive seal.

The specific applications of hydraulic seals are as diverse and numerous as they industries they are found in. Hydraulic seals can be found in construction equipment, agricultural machinery, brake devices, clean rooms, conveyors, mixers, presses, valves, and test equipment. Hydraulic seals are most often found in hydraulic cylinders, the mechanical actuators that convert hydraulic pressure (from oil, water, or another pressurized fluid) into unidirectional force for agriculture and forestry vehicles, construction equipment, and similar mechanisms. If the correct elastomer material is not chosen, the seal will break down when it encounters a corrosive fluid and contamination will occur. Gaskets are used in fluid systems around the end caps of actuating cylinders, valves, and other units. Wiper seal for hydraulic cylinder also known as scraper seals is fitted on the head of the cylinder at the external side and provide a sealing contact to the piston rod. The T-seal comes in both piston (TPO) and rod (TRO) styles. DEPAC’s unique polymer material prevents installation damage thanks to its high elasticity and wear-resistance. UTI with asymmetrical profile of the sealing lips and back-up ring as a gap sealing component. The profile has been designed with a shallow groove to ensure tight contact between the static and dynamic part, even in zero pressure situations. Hydraulic seals are divided into two main groupings: static and dynamic. Buffer seals enhance the function of the rod seal by providing a buffer” against excessive internal fluid pressure. Similarly, in the electronic industry, seals such as EMI shielding gaskets serve to prevent unwanted electromagnetic interference in various devices. Rod Seals often see the highest pressure variation. We can also custom-manufacture a full range of seals, in a full range of materials to meet your exact requirements.

KAF’s computer-designed positive lip wipes foreign bodies away from the seal face. Rod seals are considered the most critical element of a cylinder sealing system. There are many types of hydraulic seals out there and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Rod seals specifically work by preventing external fluid leakage from the cylinder. Each ring is individually manufactured and provides excellent performance, as a supporting element, to both piston, rod and face seals that are generally found in static or dynamic applications. The following are the applications of hydraulic seals in various industries. A wiper seal can be installed to prevent seal failure and system breakdown.

B-type loaded U-cup hydraulic seals are used for dynamic reciprocating applications. An example of weighing these different factors can be seen in the hypothetical selection of -rings. They use oil seals (or metric oil seals outside of the United States) that are made of resistant materials like Teflon, silicone, polyacrylate or a fluroelastomer that can handle continuous exposure to oil. Fluid Power Seals are special PTFE seals designed for use as either piston or rod seals and are activated by an elastomer -ring. Back-up rings prevent extrusion of the -ring when it is subjected to high pressures. Rod seals work together with wiper seals to protect a hydraulic system against external contaminants such as dirt and outside weather conditions. These seals are important for maintaining the piston position at rest and to control the motion of cylinder. Wiper seals or scraper seals plays an important role in preventing the entry of external contaminants such as moisture, dirt, and dust to the hydraulic system or cylinder assemblies. Our design process consists of working closely with you to understand the sealing requirements and then applying our design expertise and joint test program to develop the right sealing solution that improves your products sealing performance. Seal House can machine Rod Seals to suit almost any application. Wear rings guide the piston and piston rod within the hydraulic cylinder, absorbing transverse forces, preventing metal-to-metal contact. Nitrile – For applications with temperatures up to 250°F (Nitrile seal elements) with two Nylon or PTFE back-ups are recommended. Wear Rings:They guide the piston and piston rod within the cylinder. A type of dynamic hydraulic seal called a piston seal is exposed to movement on its outer diameter along the tube or bore of a hydraulic cylinder. Sealing Devices offers a complete line of Parker -rings, Polypaks, hydraulic seals, and sealing materials from stock, and is a Certified Parker Sealing Technology Center.

The first name in -Rings since 1958 with the right attitude, the best service, and value. The immense clearance in between the machine’s piston and cylinder wall can be isolated and cover up with this seals. An important characteristic of -rings is the compression set, or measure signifying how much an elastomer regains its initial thickness after being compressed. We offer a wide range of hydraulic seals suitable for different cylinder types and industries. Figure 1 Hydraulic seals used between nonmoving fittings and bosses are normally called gaskets. They have a quad-ring loader that makes the seal a good choice for low-pressure rod applications. Of course, not every machine contains both rods and pistons, so be sure you know the difference between the two, and which one is the type of seal that you need. Cylinder repair shops can easily upgrade stock OEM seals with highly engineered System Seals products for greater reliability and performance. Some of the rubber materials used to create seals are nitrile, silicone, natural rubber, butyl and styrene butadiene. We are offering our client an excellent quality range of Hydraulic Seal. Seals prevent or reduce fluid passage between 2 surfaces. The most common profiles and designs per seal type and guides are: piston seals, rod and buffer seals, wiper seals, guide rings and guide strips, -rings and back-up rings. Rod seals and piston seals prevent leakage of fluid from cylinders and stop pressure buildup. Heavy-duty rod seals for mobile and heavy duty industrial equipment. Hydraulic Seals are generally made out of a variety of materials, including Rubber, PTFE , and Polyurethane (AU) Compatibility of the materials is decided upon the particular operating medium or restraints due to pressure, fluid type, temperature or chemical compatibility. Primary rod seal when used in sealing system in combination with BT U-cup. Rod Seals, which guard against external leakage, are one of the most vital components of the sealing system. Aircraft hydraulic components and systems require custom seal engineering to achieve minimal leakage and maximum performance to insure long seal life, and optimize safety concerns. Depending on the application and the type of seal you’re using, preventative maintenance measures may be one the most critical aspects of maintaining optimized performance. Usually made of some type of soft, flexible elastomer that provides exceptional water and air sealing capabilities, hydraulic seals are ring-shaped and primarily designed to eliminate or limit the leakage of fluid moving within a hydraulic or pneumatic system. Ic seals, polypack seals, wiper seals, guide ring, -ring seals, Teflon piston seals. Used as static, dynamic, radial or face seals. Back-up Rings are used in conjunction with -Rings for both static and dynamic sealing applications. Typical seal element materials are: Nitrile and FKM. As the rod rotates back and forth, they avert the leakage of the liquid from inside of a hydraulic cylinder to the outside (dynamic stress sealing). Our rod wipers are easy to install by simply snapping or pressing in, and come in a wide range of materials and styles. Our Hydraulic Seals products range includes -Rings and a number of innovative Seals designed for applications in hydraulic cylinders, such as the spring-energized Turcon® Variseal®, -Ring engergized Turcon® Stepseal®2K, Zurcon® polyurethane U-Cup RU9 and many more. For production workflows to run without a hitch it is vital for the power-transmitting, hydraulic fluid to remain enclosed within the system. Although hydraulic seals are primarily designed to prevent fluid leakage, it must be remembered that hydraulic seals provide other important functions and can only be properly maintained under the right conditions. We also design many seals with secondary lips to capture remnants that may have escaped the sealing. X rings can be used both as static seals and as dynamic seals. Custom manufacturer of seals for hydraulic industry. Just as rod seals are designed to keep fluid in, wipers keep contamination out. Back-up Rings: These seals are designed to solve the problem of seal extrusion.

Special tooling for the installation of -rings is available. Seals may also be made from non-elastic materials such as felt and leather. Rod and piston installations use Wear Rings. Custom manufacturer of seals including hydraulic, mechanical, metric, military specification seals. Rod seals prevent rod corrosion and helps for the lubrication of wiper seal and rod seals. A seal may consist of more than one component, such as an -ring and a backup ring, or possibly an -ring and two backup rings. Than the outer lip in order to be used for rod applications. A single hydraulic system will usually make use of several different hydraulic seals, each designed to prevent leakage at a different point of pressure within the system. Rod Seals are the most critical seals in a hydraulic cylinder. Maintaining internal pressure and preventing contamination are leading priorities in terms of properly operating a hydraulic cylinder. They are considered to be multi-purpose hydraulic seals and are designed for significantly improved performance. Light-duty hydraulic and pneumatic U-cups used in pneumatic cylinders for industrial and low-pressure applications. 11. Safe: Hydraulic seals are completely safe to use even in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Moreover they are specially developed to accommodate different variables such as cylinder speeds, temperatures, pressures and applications. Also called double-lip U-cups and lip seals, they have nitrile lips and a urethane base to provide good stability and support large loads. Vee Packs: These are seals designed with multiple vee rings. The negative lip forms of normal seals allow dirt and foreign particles to be trapped between the seal lips and the cylinder. Sealing materials designed for life science and medical applications must demonstrate excellent resistance to the aggressive organic and inorganic chemicals and media associated with surgical and laboratorial procedures, including intensive cleaning regimes. We supply Hydraulic & Pneumatic seals for single and double acting cylinders, composite piston seals, compact seals, independent wear rings, bonded seals, static seals ( Rings), and symmetrical seals. Rod seals are key in preventing corrosion. A static hydraulic seal is located in a groove and sees no movement – only sealing within its confined space, acting like a gasket To achieve this the gasket should be under pressure. The material we choose for each hydraulic seal is determined by the operating requirements of each application. Style WK Rod Wipers Double lip design provides the ultimate in wiper action to remove foreign material from the exposed rod while still maintaining an adequate lubricating film. Scrapers & Wipers – Scrapers and wipers are components which prevent the build up of dirt, foreign particles and moisture from the piston rods by scraping or wiping it away. Rod seal kits include a rod assembly, rod wiper seal, U-cup rod seal, and -ring for repairing hydraulic cylinders. A hydraulic seal, at the end of the day, must prevent leakage of fluids from cylinders. Other products offered are mechanical, magnetic, non-contacting, and lip seals. Wear bands or wear rings are used to prevent metal-to-metal contact. Seals are divided into three main classes: packings, gaskets, and wipers. V-ring packings (AN6225) are one-way seals and are always installed with the open end of the V facing the pressure. Sometimes however you can use two single acting seals in a ‘back to back’ arrangement in order to create a double acting seal system. This seal is recommended when the coupling clearance between the head and the rod cannot be reduced and in the event of pressure peaks (500 bar). Hydraulic seals are also subdivided into seals, which have symmetrical or asymmetric cross-sections. Piston seal is a type of hydraulic seal where the sealing lip has contact with the entire housing bore. Quad rings can be used in both static and dynamic sealing applications. Rod Seal failure could result in fluid leakage. Rod Seals are affected by changes to the rod surface and fluid temperatures. Suitable for hydraulic applications that anticipate abrasive contaminations and shock loads.
