Developed in cooperation with Milwaukee School of Engineering&rsquo;s (MSOE) Fluid Power Institute&trade;, the test breaks new ground because it features a novel methodology for measuring dry particles attributed to being a major cause of hydraulic system inefficiency, degradation and failure.

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="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Seals Mon, 06 Oct 2014 19:11:00 +0000 28951 at <p>Percentage of compression set varies among typical families of sealing elastomers used in fluid power systems.</p>
