Understanding the Usage and Benefits of Hydraulic Seals For Industrial Purposes

As simple as the idea, look and purpose of small equipment may be, they find immense utility in extending support to big machinery and appliances and are the lifeblood of their effective functioning.

Hydraulic seals belong to one such category and pertain to a set of non metallic rings, soft in nature and find their utility in resisting the motion of fluids with the conversion of fluid power into linear motions.

Pneumatic seals are another class of motion reciprocating entities and find their use in preventing air or any other gaseous substances from escaping any device operated by or under gas pressure, such as cylinders. Pneumatic seals can either be single acting or double acting in nature. While single acting seals are designed to work in one direction only, double acting Pneumatic Seals, as their name suggests, act in both directions.

Together, the group of Hydraulic and Pneumatic Seals find industrial application across a wide range of products, ranging from housing substances such as a washing machine to heavy machinery in the industrial sector. Endowed with variety and quality, the company emerges superior with its Hydraulic seals and Pneumatic seals supplies across the Middle East, Russia, among other nations.

The materials which go into the making of Hydraulic Seals depend on the operating conditions they are designed for. Materials include polyurethane, which is known for its high resilience and finding use in wheels, tires, escalators; rubber such as those found in gaskets of pressure cookers; PTFE, deployed in reducing wear and tear of machinery by acting as a lubricant.

As far as the motion of a Hydraulic seal is concerned, it can be classified as

  • Static
  • Dynamic

A static seal observes no movement whatsoever and seals only within a confined perimeter.

A dynamic hydraulic seal is subject to movement within the inner diameter.

One important offshoot of the dynamic seal is Piston seals for Hydraulic Cylinders, commonly referred to as Hydraulic Cylinder Piston Seals.

Piston seals are built on the following working mechanisms:

  • These are dynamic seals, guarding the movement of fluids or other substances
  • They may either be single acting or double acting, depending upon the nature of the cylinder
  • Single acting pistons perform the task of containing the pressure from one side of the piston
  • Double acting pistons work in both directions enabling high pressure to get trapped between seals

With rubber sealing rings, Hydraulic Cylinder Piston Seals find their presence in medium duty applications in drilling and steel mills.
