2018-06-20 Preventing seal failure and hydraulic sealing solutions

Preventing seal failure and hydraulic sealing solutions
The two main functions of a seal are to minimize or prevent leakage of fluid while keeping dirt and debris out. If a seal is not made as per functional requirements, or is installed and maintained improperly, it may fail and cause a loss of fluid. To function properly seals must withstand extreme temperatures, high pressures, chemicals and contaminants. Go to press info
