Rod-Piston seal 12x18x6
Rod-Piston seal 12x18x6 is one type of hydraulic seal that is used in rod and piston applications. It’s dimensions provided (12x18x6) indicate the seal’s inside diameter (ID), outside diameter (OD) and thickness (TH) respectively.
Working function of Rod-Piston seal
This type of seal is designed to fit inside a hydraulic cylinder bore or around a piston rod to prevent fluid leakage. It creates a barrier between the high-pressure fluid on one side of the seal and the lower pressure or ambient environment on the other side.
Dimensions of Rod-Piston seal
The seal’s dimensions (ID, OD, TH) are very important to achieve a proper fitting in the hydraulic cylinder. The ID must match with the piston diameter, the OD must match with the cylinder bore or housing diameter. The seal’s thickness (TH) is designed to provide an adequate sealing contact between the components.
Rod-piston seals are usually made from Polyurethane (PU) or Nitrile rubber (NBR). These materials offer excellent sealing properties, durability, and resistance to fluids.
Application of Rod-Piston seal
Rod-Piston seals are typically installed in hydraulic systems, such as cylinders used in industrial machinery, automotive applications, and hydraulic presses.
