There is an almost endless selection of Industrial seals on the market. So first of all, to try to make things clearer we have grouped them into types.
Bonded – A bonded seal is a type of washer used to provide a seal around a screw or bolt. Originally made by Dowty Group, they are also commonly known as Dowty seals. Dowty was acquired by what is now Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. As their partner distributor we can supply these products to the highest quality and at the best possible price.
Static – A Static seal is usually used when there is no relative motion between mating surfaces.
Rotary – A rotary seal closes spaces between stationary and moving components.
Piston – A Piston Seal or Piston Ring is used in hydraulic cylinders for fluid sealing. They are internal to the cylinder head and seal against the cylinder bore. As a result it will prevent fluid from flowing across the cylinder head.
Rod – A Rod Seal is used in hydraulic cylinders for fluid sealing. They are external to the cylinder head and seal against the cylinder’s rod. This prevents leakage of fluid from within the cylinder to the outside.
Pneumatic – Pneumatic seals operate in dynamic applications, often at high speeds, generally with rotary or reciprocating motions.
