Seals are used within mechanical devices with reciprocal or rotary motion and are placed in compression between two objects such as universal joints or cylinders. The objective of a seal is to prevent the escape (or entry) of fluids or gases and to help maximise power and control within a piece of equipment or a system. Seal kits contain a range of seals in different sizes and/or materials.
What are seals used for? Seals support the conversion of fluid power into linear motion and prevent the escape or intrusion of fluids or gases. They're used in a range of industries and applications, and within both hydraulic and pneumatic systems and equipment, such as production processes and tools.
Types of seal kits Seal kits come in different sizes suitable for specific uses and can be used for repair or replacement as well as manufacture.They're also made from materials with advanced properties such as polyurethane, polyamide, phenolic resin, among others. The different materials ensure perfect operation of equipment and machinery including during varied pressure, speed and temperature ranges.
