Most of you will already understand these basics of how an oil seal is designed but we wanted to put this tip out for people new to the field.
In an oil seal environment there is a shaft that is rotating inside a housing or bore. Because of friction, there must be some clearance between the shaft and the bore. The function of the oil seal is to stop whatever fluid is inside from l... (read more)
Teflon® is a plastic that offers high chemical resistance, low and high temperature capability, resistance to weathering, low friction, electrical and thermal insulation, and "slipperiness".
Teflon® mechanical properties are low compared to other plastics, but its properties remain at a useful level over a wide temperature range of -100°F to +400°F (-73°C to 204°C). (read more)
X-Rings, also known as Quad-Rings®, can be used in a wide variety of static and dynamic sealing applications.
The four-lobed design provides twice the sealing surface in comparison to a standard o-ring. The double-seal action requires less squeeze to maintain an effective seal. This reduction in squeeze means less friction and improved seal life. (read more)

Common Rod Wiper Seal Styles
Rod wipers are designed to remove dust, dirt, ice, weld flash and many other particulates from surface of the rod. They prevent damage to bearings, seals, packings, and rods, and can reduce or even eliminate contamination of fluids in hydraulic systems. This can... (read more)
Prevents metal to metal contact between piston/rod and bore/gland and absorbs transverse loads.Filled PTFE material gives good load capacity with low friction and stick-slip-free operation. Protects critical sealing lips from contamination and dieseling effects. Cost effective, allows designers freedom in hardware material selection. Higher static loads are permissible. (read more)
