Simrit has developed an advanced surface treatment process to improve seal function and service life. The company’s Reduced Friction by Nanotechnology method is one of the newest tools available for enhancing seal performance.
Seals / Leakage
Simrit has developed its CASCO (self-contained seal design) Cassette Shaft Seal.This next-generation seal design was developed specifically to provide the lowest friction of any seal in the industry, an extended service life and increased reliability for modern heavy duty engine applications.
With its ability to dramatically impact seal life and performance, counter surface quality plays a major role in the proper function of a sealing system. Accordingly, the accurate evaluation of this attribute is critical to the overall effectiveness of a system.
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has released a new iPhone app, “Unit and Hardness Converter.” This new tool converts frequently used units and currencies, as well as popular hardness scales for various material types based on ISO and ASTM standards.
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has developed a proprietary polyurethane compound called Zurcon Z25 that demonstrates all the characteristics of Zurcon grade Z20 with an elevated operating temperature up to 270° F.
Using the improper hydraulic fluid can spell disaster for your entire hydraulic assembly. When designing and/or servicing your hydraulic equipment, it is vital that you keep compatibility in mind.
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has developed Turcon M12, a PTFE based sealing material that has excellent performance against key hydraulic sealing characteristics such as friction, wear and high-pressure operation.
Simrit, along with agricultural machine specialist Claas, have developed a new, robust, low-maintenance belt-tensioning cylinder with a long service life.
Simrit’s E454 EPDM (ethylene-propylene rubber) compound was recently certified to NAS (National Aerospace Standard) 1613 Revision 5 Specification.
When it comes to installing and maintaining the life of your O-ring, a few basic rules of thumb must be considered.
