The single-acting rod seal type SD 01 is primarily used in cylinders with one-sided pressurization. The media used in these applications range from mineral oil-based hydraulic liquids, environment-friendly bio-oils and water to flame-resistant hydraulic liquids and air. It promises stick-slip free running as well as good dry-running properties.
While the PTFE profile ring seals dynamically against the cylinder surface, the elastic O-ring ensures uniform contact pressure of the PTFE profile ring onto the cylinder surface, and at the same time, a static sealing between profile ring and groove base.
Even with low pressures, the piston seal shows a good sealing effect thanks to the inherent preload of the PTFE profile ring and the contact force of the preloaded O-ring. At higher system pressures, the medium pressurizes the O-ring causing it to press the PTFE seal with enhanced force against the cylinder surface.
With different material combinations, the piston seal can be used reliably across the whole pressure, speed and temperature range.
