Dynamic Seals

Dynamic Seals

Dynamic seals are used in applications with motion between the hardware component and the sealing solution. The motion can be rotary, translatory, reciprocating or oscillating. Effective dynamic seals need to maintain a balance between the sealing force, minimize the friction and furthermore prevent leakage.

Enormous Force on an Extremely Small Area

Piston Seals From Freudenberg Sealing Technologies Stay in Shape Even Under the Greatest Loads

Piston seals have the job of reliably sealing the piston against the cylinder tube while ensuring its efficient movement with minimal friction and without drift.

High Functionality Thanks to the Right Materials 

Piston Seals from Freudenberg Sealing Technologies are used in a wide variety of state-of-the-art sealing systems. They are specially adapted to their particular tasks and conditions of use. Their high level of functionality is impressive.

State-of-the-art hydraulic Piston Seals can be precisely adjusted to a particular application with the selection of suitable materials. Polyurethane and PTFE materials mainly come into use. In combination with the Freudenberg Sealing Technology geometries – which have been proven a million times over – they always provide the optimal solution.

There are different ways to seal pistons in pneumatic cylinders (see illustration). In this case as well, the right products are available from the Freudenberg Sealing Technologies portfolio.

Hdp 330: The Piston Seal for the Harshest Operating Conditions

For applications with difficult operating conditions, the special polyamide (PA) HDP 330 piston seal from Freudenberg Sealing Technologies offers maximum functional reliability, while withstanding extreme pressures, as high as 800 bar. Thanks to the highly wear resistant sealing element material, cylinder tubes with rougher surfaces than would normally be recommended can be used for a simplified, cost-effective cylinder design. 

Its extreme resistance to gap extrusion and its fast and easy installation are other advantages of this robust piston seal.

Another important feature of this two-component seal is its  elastomer energizing element. It is generally produced from acrylic rubber (NBR), but a high temperature elastomer can also be used to achieve higher temperatures.
