Hydraulic & Fluid Seals

For sealing dynamic, linear and reciprocating motions

Why American High Performance Seals?

The piston seal is designed to ensure that pressurized fluid does not leak between the piston and bore as the system pressure pushes the piston down the cylinder bore (dynamic pressure sealing)

Seal Design Considerations:

  • Non-symmetrical Rod Seal Design
  • Lip vs. Squeeze Type Seals
  • Seal Lip Geometry

Our Hydraulic & Fluid Seals are categorized as follows:

  • Rod Seals
    High-Pressure / Ultra-High Pressure / Long-Life / Low-Friction Rod Seals
