Symmetrical U-Cup for Contamination Exclusion
Uni-directional, single-acting rod or piston seal design provides good contamination exclusion but reduced sealing performance due to seal lip design. Also used in applications with worn rods and old equipment.
Retro fits 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 PTFE®, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org|
Size Table (Inch)Standard range sizes listed below are preferred sizes for new design applications. Seals are available for any shaft diameter size in 0.001 inch increments, including functional range and optional groove width. Additionally we offer any other seal size as required.
