Hydraulic seals are made from relatively soft materials and typically come in the form of a ring which fits into a groove or channel and can be a single, or series of fixed rings. The rings or seals are used in combination to create a seal or to block fluids where there is fluid pressure and motion. Our seals are made from rubber and used in a variety of industries and applications where there is fluid transfer, hydraulic machinery or equipment. A high pressure hydraulic system uses pressurized liquid or fluid to move and control mechanical bodies like arms, doors, shafts and other solid objects by converting the fluid power into energy. It is through this high pressure energy transfer that the hydraulic motion happens and why it is so critical to implement the highest caliber rubber hydraulic seals.
Lower pressure hydraulics can create simple and reliable seals for the general transfer of fluids through hosing, piping or plumbing from a source to a destination.
This can be as simple as your home plumbing system or garden hose on the side of your house, or complex fluid transfer systems used in industrial, commercial and residential applications. Again, because of the involvement of pressure and fluids it is important to use high quality rubber seals to ensure the proper product function and help to prevent fluid or water leakage.
