What Are Pneumatic Seals Used For?

Rotary and reciprocating motions within industrial applications will require pneumatic seals and cylinders. For this purpose, pneumatic seals will be required for these applications to run smoothly. These seals can be used in a variety of commercial applications. Pneumatic systems specifically use air to transmit power and are used to protect the system from repeated motion. Single-acting pneumatic… Continue Reading

Why do O-rings fail?

One of the most common types of seals is O-rings. They are made of elastomeric material and placed around two parts’ mating surfaces. O-rings are intended to prevent leaks from forming between these mating surfaces. However, O-rings can fail in some situations. Incorrect size There is no such thing as a universal O-ring. While they… Continue Reading

The basics of pneumatic seals

Because of their similar seal profiles, hydraulic and pneumatic seals are frequently confused. The key distinction is that pneumatic seals are actuated by compressed air. Examples of pneumatic seals Back-up rings: Back-up rings are responsible for supporting O-rings in the event of gap extrusion in static radial sealing. Gaskets: A gasket is a flexible spacer… Continue Reading

The difference between gaskets and seals

If you’re unsure whether to use a gasket or a seal, it’s critical to understand their distinctions. While they may appear interchangeable, each has unique properties that make them advantageous depending on the situation. Gasket basics While there are some similarities between gaskets and seals, there are also some distinct differences. A gasket is a… Continue Reading

Types of gaskets

A gasket is one of the basic elements for flanged joints in several systems. A gasket is a sealing material or a combination of materials clamped between two separable mechanical members of a mechanical or flanged joint that produces the joint’s weakest link. Different types of gaskets ensure leak-proof sealing. Many different types of gaskets… Continue Reading

What is a split seal?

A split seal has components split into two equal halves which are secured as one unit on the seal shaft. The major advantage of the split seal design is that it allows you to install the seal with no dismantling of the pump (or equipment), this allows you to quickly and easily replace worn or… Continue Reading

U-Cup seals

U cups, or more commonly known as U seals, are an integral part of a piston or cylinder sealing system. Although they may look round in shape, their unique U-shaped profile safeguards the pneumatic or hydraulic cylinder. U-Seals are a lip seal, named for the cross-section’s distinctive “U” shape. They are used for both dynamic… Continue Reading

Wiper seal basicsWiper seal basics

Hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders play an essential part in the operation of industrial equipment and are found in a wide range of applications. The function of the wiper seal is to prevent dirt particles from entering hydraulic or pneumatic cylinders. Wiper seals for pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders, also known as scraper seals, are installed on… Continue Reading
