Fluid power seals on mobile machinery
By Josh Cosford Seals are the unsung heroes of the fluid power industry; they work hard in nearly every conceivable pump, valve or actuator, providing function, efficiency and reliability far exceeding their cost or complexity. For such a simple invention, the seal exists in countless configurations, often with nearly imperceptible differences, but different all the […]
Trelleborg launches sealing material for hydraulic aerospace applications
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions launches Turcon M30 sealing material, which is engineered to withstand and optimize performance against the extremely hard ceramic coatings that are the eco-friendly alternatives to chrome plating of rods in hydraulic aerospace applications. Tests prove that the new compound increases seal life to reduce planned maintenance, extend flight hours and ultimately lower costs.
New seal marking technology allows for traceability
Simrit, the industrial sealing products business of Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies, has developed a sophisticated safety technology. The safe (secure adaptive Freudenberg encryption) laser technology, which was recently granted a European patent (EP 2 096 580 B1), is suited for industries with high safety and traceability requirements, such as energy or aerospace.
Trelleborg launches free O-ring calculator app for iPhone
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions (TREL-B) has released an “O-ring calculator” app. The new app calculates O-ring dimensions and tolerances and recommends sizes and Trelleborg Sealing Solutions part numbers.
Simrit’s piston sealing systems reduce friction
Simrit, the industrial sealing division of Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies, has developed three new piston seals that reduce friction and lower energy consumption in applications like mechanical transmissions and pneumatic cylinders.
