At pressures of 5000 to 7000 psi, the strongest elastomeric materials in standard seal configurations resist the extrusion without reinforcement. At higher pressures, the elastomeric sealing element must be backed by a higher modulus and harder material. Various, more-or-less standard, backup configurations have demonstrated their effectiveness over many years.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/seals/sealed-shut" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/seals/sealed-shut#comments Seals Mon, 06 Oct 2014 19:11:00 +0000 28951 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com <p>Percentage of compression set varies among typical families of sealing elastomers used in fluid power systems.</p> One-piece bidirectional seal http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/seals/one-piece-bidirectional-seal <div class="node-body article-body"><p><img alt="" src="/site-files/hydraulicspneumatics.com/files/uploads/2014/06/Trelleborg-Turcon-Roto-Glyd.gif" style="width: 350px; height: 223px; margin: 5px; float: right;" />The Turcon Roto Glyd Ring II seal offers a high pressure-velocity (PV) rating that&rsquo;s 140% higher than its predecessor.

The poultry was placed into bins, 10 at a time, and the bins were stacked 10 high. The 10-high pallet-transfer system consisted of a floor-mounted rack-and-pinion drive system with a gerotor motor driving the pinion to move the pallets. The pallets were then shuttled to one of three locations to be off-loaded for final processing.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/seals/production-boost-causes-seal-leak" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/seals/production-boost-causes-seal-leak#comments Seals Mon, 16 Dec 2013 17:13:00 +0000 24681 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Respect seals – they’ve earned it http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/seals/respect-seals-they-ve-earned-it <div class="field-deck"> When you consider the cost of all components in a fluid-power system, seals may give you the most bang for your buck. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Compared to other components in a fluid-power system, the low cost of seals doesn&rsquo;t earn them much respect. However, rod seals perform one of the toughest jobs in a fluid-power system. They must squeeze the piston rod tight enough to prevent pressurized fluid from leaking out of the cylinder. But if they squeeze too hard, they&rsquo;ll wear prematurely and maybe even damage the piston rod surface. Not only that, seals must prevent leakage at high pressure, low pressure, varying temperatures, a wide range of rod speeds, and when systems sit idle for days on end.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/seals/respect-seals-they-ve-earned-it" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/seals/respect-seals-they-ve-earned-it#comments Seals Mon, 16 Dec 2013 16:34:00 +0000 24621 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com The most-powerful seal test bench in the world http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/seals/most-powerful-seal-test-bench-world <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Installed in a specially constructed well, an 18-ton, 260‑kW floating-mount rod seal test bench is located at Trelleborg&rsquo;s research and development center in Stuttgart, Germany.
