Low-Friction High-Pressure Bi-Directional Hydraulic Piston Seal

K81


Low-Friction High-Pressure Bi-Directional Hydraulic Piston Seal

Rectangular energizer ensures a stable, positive seal and provides continuous contact along the sealing surface. The filled-PTFE cap provides low friction and smooth operation of hydraulic cylinders over a wide range of medium- to high-pressure sealing applications. The small axial seal height reduces piston height, weight and cost. ISO 7425-1 and many standard and custom sizes available.

Additional standard materials available: PTFE, filled Teflon®, engineered thermoplastics, high-performance polyurethanes, NBR (Nitrile), FKM, Viton®, HNBR, EPDM, Aflas®, Hytrel®, Silicone, low- and high-temperature, FDA-compliant seal material grades and proprietary specialized Duralast™, Duraloy™, and Permachem™ materials.
Important Note: Maximum values above depend on extrusion gap, clearances, seal material, media, temperatures, pressures, surface speed, dynamic running surface finish and working environment. Seals cannot be operated at their upper ratings at the same time. Pressure ratings can be increased by reducing clearances. For pressure above specified operating pressure, surface speed above 5ft/s (1.3m/s), or for any advice, please contact engineering@ahpseals.com
