Loaded Non-Symmetrical Hydraulic Rod Seal

S3


Loaded Non-Symmetrical Hydraulic Rod Seal

Designed to provide positive sealing in medium-to high-pressure service applications where low-pressure startup may be present. The non-symmetrical design provides better stability and static OD sealing, which is not provided by a symmetrical seal or polypak type seal. Will retrofit any polypak type seals or seals of similar design.

Additional standard materials available: High-performance polyurethanes, NBR (Nitrile), FKM, Viton®, HNBR, EPDM, Aflas®, Hytrel®, Silicone, low- and high-temperature, FDA-compliant seal material grades, PTFE, filled Teflon®, engineered thermoplastics 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, please contact engineering@ahpseals.com
Size Table (Inch)Standard range sizes listed below are preferred sizes for new design applications; however, we offer any other seal size as required. Seals are available for any rod diameter and groove width in 0.001 inch increments, including functional range and optional groove width.
