Frequently Asked Questions
What are seals and what are they used for?
Seals are devices used to prevent or control the escape of fluids or gases from a system. They are typically used in mechanical equipment such as pumps, valves, and cylinders.
What are O-rings and how do they work?
O-rings are a type of seal that is shaped like a torus, or donut. They are used to seal the space between two parts and prevent the escape of fluids or gases. O-rings work by creating a tight seal between two surfaces through compression.
What are U-cups and how are they used?
U-cups are a type of seal that are shaped like a U. They are used in hydraulic systems to prevent fluid from escaping between a piston and a cylinder wall. U-cups work by creating a tight seal that prevents fluid from passing through the space between the piston and the cylinder.
What are Vee Packings and how are they used?
Vee Packings are a type of seal that are used in hydraulic and pneumatic systems. They are made up of a series of rings that are stacked together to form a tight seal. Vee Packings work by creating a tight seal between two surfaces through compression.
What materials are seals made of?
Seals can be made from a variety of materials including rubber, silicone, polyurethane, Teflon, and metal.
What factors should be considered when selecting a seal?
When selecting a seal, factors such as operating temperature, pressure, fluid compatibility, and seal material should be considered.
How long do seals typically last?
The lifespan of a seal can vary depending on a variety of factors including the operating conditions and the material the seal is made of. However, in general, most seals are designed to last for a certain number of operating cycles.
How are seals installed?

The installation process can vary depending on the type of seal being used and the equipment it is being installed in.
