Rod Seals

Rod seals are considered the most critical element of a cylinder sealing system.

Rod Seals prevent the leakage of fluid from within a hydraulic cylinder to the outside as the rod cycles back and forth (dynamic pressure sealing). Rod seals work together with wiper seals to protect a hydraulic system against external contaminants such as dirt and outside weather conditions.

Rod seals are static seals installed in the glands or housings. They maintain a seal with the piston rod in dynamic motion.

In heavier duty applications, a rod seal can be combined with a secondary buffer seal for a more robust sealing effect.

UK Seals supply a comprehensive range of rod seal designs that offer outstanding protection from ingress of media. These include PTFE (Teflon) seals, U Seals, fabric Seals, V packs and application–specific designed seals made from high-performance elastomers and engineering plastic materials. Our range offers maximum durability and sealing performance. Compounds available include Nitrile rubber, Polyurethane, or Fluorocarbon Viton.
