Specialty O-Rings can be made from perfluoroelastomer (PTFE), Viton®, neoprene, nitrile, EPDM, solid and cellular urethane or silicone, and santoprene.
Seals / Leakage
The EHS2 directional control valve fulfills the need to integrate a number of functions in one central, space-saving electro-hydraulic control unit.
HAWE Hydraulics introduces the newest member of directional seated valves, known for their ability to stop flow without leakage.
Honing reduces hysteresis and improves the low-voltage reliability of electrically actuated valves. This can be an advantage for units installed on mobile equipment.
ExpresSeal delivers seals for emergency replacement that can be produced and quickly shipped in virtually any standard profile.
Full-Torque Nut coupling’s consistent sealing force offer unsurpassed resistance to cracking. A patented process allows Gates to manufacture couplings for wire-braid hydraulic hose assemblies comparable in cost to traditional staked-nut designs.
Sealing systems, crucial for cylinder function, are highly stressed components with a defined useful lifetime. To increase their life and ensure effectiveness over extended periods of time, it can be important to address the primary effects of fatigue, aging, wear and contamination.
The DA24 protects against ingress of dirt, external media, and moisture; demonstrates efficient
sealing behavior; generates a limited amount of heat; and has stability in the groove securing function. It suits aggressive environments such as off-road vehicle applications.
The Universal Push-to-Connect (UPTC) assembly provides fast and efficient, leak-free connections for compact fluid power systems in industrial, mobile, and construction equipment.
Today’s cylinders are expected to run with higher efficiency and minimal leakage—mandating that sealing systems work with optimum effectiveness.
