Hydraulic Seals Are…

Hydraulic Seals

are used to seal in fluids or other media in reciprocating and linear motion applications. The shaft, rod and piston moves backwards and/or forward, in and/or out, up or/and down.

Hydraulic Seals are designed to… hydraulic seals

  • Maintain hydraulic pressure
  • Retain the lubricant
  • Exclude contamination

Hydraulic Seals are grouped as follows…

  • Piston Seals hydr2
  • Rod Seals
  • Wiper Seals
  • Guide Rings
  • O-Rings
  • Backup Rings

Wiper Seal

This hydraulic seal is designed to keep contamination out of the hydraulic system. Contamination is the most common reason for breakdowns and the humble wiper seal has an extremely important task to prevent this.

Piston Seal

This hydraulic seal is designed to ensure that pressurised fluid does not leak between the piston and the bore. The piston seal is available both as single and double acting. The ultimate choice of piston seal must be based on the operating conditions.

Rod Seal

This hydraulic seal is designed to ensure that pressurised fluid does not leak out of the equipment as the rod moves back and forth. Rod seals must meet the most demanding specifications due to the fact that leakage through the rod seal can possibly cause accidents and environmental damage.

O-Rings

O-Rings are hydraulic seals. The humble, simple and unique o-ring is used in many different applications. O-Rings are mostly used in static sealing applications but tend to extrude at fairly low pressure. A harder material may help but a backup ring used on one or both sides of the o-ring will improve performance

Guide Rings

The task of the guide ring (and guide strip) is to guide the piston and rod to ensure that there is no metallic contact between mobile parts. Guide strips are made of plastic as this material works more smoothly and has a considerably longer service life that metallic guides.

Backup Rings

The backup ring provides extrusion resistance for an O-ring. The backup is used when the O-ring is subjected to high pressure, large extrusion gaps and high temperatures. Backups can be used on one or both sides of the O-ring dependant on the application.

All About Hydraulic Cylinder Seals

Optimum Performance of Hydraulic Cylinder Seals 

The following basic very important facts regarding the use of hydraulic cylinder seals will, if followed, improve performance and reduce downtime.

1.     1. Hydraulic Cylinder Seals Excessive Clearances – between the piston and cylinder wall the seal will be subjected to deformation causing extrusion. The pressure will cause the seal to fail.

Prevention : Use the recommended clearances and accurate assembly to ensure that the clearance is equal all around.

2.    2. Scored rods and/or cylinder walls – Severe scoring prevents the seal lips from sealing the entire surface resulting in leakage. The deeper the score marks the less positive the sealing plus reducing the life of the seal. and  

Solution – Refinish rods and/or cylinder walls.

3.    3. Foreign matter, dirt, metal shavings etc. – in the hydraulic system will cause many problems with seals. Seepage and premature failure can occur along with damage to equipment.

Solution – Proper installation, preventative maintenance and filtration.

4.    4. Damage to sealing lips – It is imperative to ensure that care be taken when installing the seals. The use of sharp tools must be avoided.

Recommendation – Seals may be lubricated with a compatible medium to facilitate installation

5.    5. Fluid Temperature – Excessively high temperature can cause a seal to lose memory which will result in the fluid leakage.

Solution – the correct sealing material should be used to prevent seal failure

6.    6. Chemicals – incorrect analysis of chemicals/fluids used as hydraulic medium will attack the seal and cause failure.

Solution – Analysis of the hydraulic medium matched with proper seal compound

7.    7. Excessive wear – usually indicates that the seal has not been properly seated. This will result in a short service life.

Solution – Attention to proper seating and/or adjustment

8.    8. Wear on one side – could be due to worn/misaligned bearings, wear rings or rods that will result in excessive wear on one side of a seal.

Solution Re-bushing and aligning the assembly to ensure proper guidance.

While many of these issues may be logical it is always relevant to remind ourselves of the basics. I trust this article will be of value.

Static Seal and Dynamic Seal?

What is a Static Seal and Dynamic Seal!

Definition:

Dynamic Seal : A seal required to prevent leakage past parts which are in relative motion

Static Seal: A seal that is made between two stable and immovable components

Types of Seals Static Seal

Static Seal

O-Rings, Back-up Rings, Square Rings, V-Rings, Dual Seals…

Dynamic Seal

Hydraulic and Pneumatic seals, Oil and Grease seals, Wipers and Scrapers, Labyrinth seals and more…

Manufacturers, of course re-name their products in order to enhance sales but essentially the above constitute the common names for the seals.

How does a Static Seal Work?static

A static seal is located in a groove and sees no movement – only sealing within its confined space, acting like a gasket between the mating surfaces. . Examples include seals for flanges, plugs, and tubing. As pressure increases, it deforms and reshapes the seal so that sealing pressure increases to withstand the greater containment requirements. O-rings, V-rings, and other shapes are typical examples.

How does a Dynamic Seal Work? dynamic

A Dynamic seal retains or separates fluids, also keeps out contaminants, and contains pressure. It creates a barrier between moving and stationary surfaces.

 Dynamic seals are either contact or clearance. Contact seals bear against the mating surface under positive pressure. Clearance seals operate with positive clearance, therefore no rubbing contact.

Most dynamic seals are contact seals. The relative movement of the dynamic sealing system is rotary or reciprocating, separated by a thin layer of oil film, which also serves as a lubricant

A rod seal (also called internal seal) is exposed to movement on its inner diameter along the shaft or rod of a hydraulic cylinder. A piston seal also called external seal) is exposed to movement on its outer diameter along the tube or bore of a hydraulic cylinder.

Note: For the best sealing, the seal lip on a dynamic seal needs to point towards the medium being contained.

How to Manufacture the Best Product

We Utilize 3 Manufacture Processes

FUZION TRADING optimizes the quality of each product by the use of various processes in the manufacture of your requirements.

The Process: manufacture

  1. The product is designed and an exact drawing is give
  2. The in-house toolmaker who manufactures a mould to the exact specification on the drawing
  3. Samples are produced which need to be passed by both Quality Control and the Customer
  4. The product is then manufactured using one of the following three processes

a.     Injection Moulding

b.    Compression Moulding

c.     Open Cast Moulding

Manufacture Process #1

Injection Moulding is a manufacturing process for producing parts from both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials. Material is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into a mould cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the mould cavity. There are approximately 20,000 different materials available for injection moulding.

Click the Link for a more detailed explanation of Injection Moulding

Manufacture Process #2manufacture

Compression Moulding is a method in which the moulding material, generally preheated, is first placed in an open, heated mould cavity. The mould is closed with a top force, pressure is applied to force the material into contact with all mould areas, while heat and pressure are maintained until the moulding material has cured

Click this Link for a more detailed explanation of Compression Moulding

Manufacture Process #3

Open Cast Moulding  (or Casting) is a manufacturing process by which a liquid material is usually poured into  a mould, which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, e.g. a seal, and then allowed to solidify. Open cast moulding is often used for making complex shapes that would be difficult or uneconomical to make by other methods. Producing open-cast polyurethane components are normally more labour intensive but the result is a greater range of physical properties which translates into better overall performance in the long run, therefore long term significant cost savings.

How to Avoid and/or Correct Hydraulic Sealing Problems

Hydraulic Sealing Problems…and How to Correct Them!

Improper Installation

Bad : Cleanliness, Unsafe handling, Contamination, Incorrectly chosen for the application.

Good: Discuss with an engineer or hydraulic seal manufacturer the best type of seal to use for an application, and how to install correctly. Installing the seal backwards is a really common error.

hydraulic Contamination of a hydraulic seal

Bad : Allowing Dirt, powder and other tiny elements can attach themselves to the hydraulic piston.

Good: Installing the seal correctly, assuring it is clean upon installation and that the piston area is free from dust. Installing rod wipers can prevent the rods from becoming dirty. Liquid used should be free of contaminants.

Heat Erosion

Bad: Heat can cause hydraulic seals to melt, become brittle and crack apart. The temperature of the application plus constant friction can decrease a hydraulic seal’s life expectancy significantly.

Good : Seals should be checked for heat degradation. One solution is to   purchase seals made up of correct heat resistant material. Increase lubrication while decreasing lip seal interference.

Click this Link for – Material Temperature Range

Chemical Erosion

Bad: Incorrect matching the seal material to the types of chemicals used in the application. A chemical can eat away at one type of material but will have less of an effect on another.

Good : A complex decision making process. Consult your hydraulic seal manufacturer the best type of seal to use for the application

Flange Seals

Flange Seals

Hydraulic flange seals are manufactured from high-grade polyurethane and work extremely well for aggressive, heavy-duty and high pressure applications. Flange seals provide better resistance than O-rings to extrusion and compression within a working pressure of approx.350 bar and temperature of -35 to 90 degrees centigrade.

Flange Seals Unlike common O-rings, the seals are specifically designed to fit SAE standard location groove on the underside of a flange. The seal’s rectangular cross section fits accurately within the flange machined housing. The seals are available in six standard sizes to fit flanges from ½ to 2 in. These flange seals are developed especially for SAE flanges

Basic Size Range – Flange Seals

1/2”        17 x 25.4 x 2.85

3/4”        23.4 x 31.8 x 2.85

1”           31.3 x 39.7 x 2.85

1 ¼”       36.1 x 44.5 x 2.85

1 ½”       45.4 x 53.8 x 2.85

2”           55 x 63.4 x 2.85

Internationally recognised FUZION TRADING manufactures the full range of Flange Seals at their facility in Wadeville, Germiston.  While stocking the above range, FUZION TRADING is well qualified to manufacture any other size flange seals required for a special application.

Hydraulic Seals – What Are They?

What Are Hydraulic Seals? Hydraulic Seals

Hydraulic Seals are relatively soft, non-metallic rings captured in a groove or fixed in a combination of rings, to form a seal assembly, to block or separate fluid in reciprocating motion applications. Hydraulic seals are vital in machinery. Their use is critical in providing a way for fluid power to be converted to linear motion.

Types of Hydraulic Seals

A Static Hydraulic Seal is located in a groove and sees no movement and only sealing within its confined space. E.g. cap seals, flange gaskets

A Dynamic Hydraulic Seal called a Rod Seal is exposed to movement on its inner diameter along the shaft or rod of a hydraulic cylinder.

A Dynamic Hydraulic Seal called a Piston Seal is exposed to movement on its outer diameter along the tube or bore of a hydraulic cylinder.

Hydraulic seals are made from a variety of materials such as…

  • Polyurethane
  • Rubber
  • PTFE

The material used will depend on the specific operating conditions, e.g.

  • Fluid type
  • Pressure
  • Temperature

Polyurethane is the most common material used in the manufacture of hydraulic seals, it is…

Abrasion resistant
Polyurethane Hydraulic Seals will often outwear other materials by large margins especially in abrasive conditions. Polyurethane is proven superior to plastics, rubber and even metal in many applications.

Weather resistant
Polyurethane hydraulic seals have an outstanding resistance to general weather conditions.

Tear resistant
Tear-strength range of polyurethane hydraulic seals is far superior to rubbers. As a result, urethane is also often used as drive belts, diaphragms, roll covers, cutting pads and many other products

Oil and solvent resistant
Polyurethane hydraulic seals have excellent resistance to oils, solvents, fats, greases and petroleum products.

Load bearing capacity
Polyurethane has a high load-bearing capacity and because of this characteristic not only is it an ideal material for hydraulic seals but also for load wheels, heavy duty couplings, metal-forming pads, shock pads, expansion joints and machine mounts.
