This single-acting rod seal type SD 04 is a two-piece seal. It consists of a profile ring and an O-ring as a preload element and is thus ideally suited for applications in the low pressure range.
A low coefficient of friction and small installation height are the decisive advantages of this seal. It is also characterized by a high wear resistance, good service life and very good chemical and thermal resistance.
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.
