Used in reciprocating hydraulic and pneumatic equipment and high pressure applications, our T-Seal eliminates two major sealing problems often experienced with other packings:
- Extrusion through large metal clearances which are abnormally large and/or where pressures are above 1500 psi.
- Roll and spiral failures due to instability in grooves.
It is important to first select the specific pressure range, temperature range, maximum diametrical clearance and seal width. The most common cause of seal failure is due to extrusion of seal through a clearance gap. Many other failures result from small errors in back-up ring dimensions, in particular at the point of split.
Our T-Seals are used for a wide range of applications, including: oil drilling, submarines, pumps, accumulators, presses, construction equipment, industrial machinery, mining equipment, farm machinery, off-road equipment, service station equipment, hydraulic valves, Pneumatic Equipment and other fluid power applications.
