SEALS

Mechanical Seals Manufacturer

Any kind of hydraulic cylinder or machinery will use seals in their construction. Machinery and equipment are fine-tuned and every element must fit perfectly to avoid a catastrophic failure. Seals work as a part of a system and prevent leakages or contamination of outside debris or dust. At Cheshire Seals and Components, we work with a variety of materials such as high-grade plastics, polyurethanes, rubbers and metal alloys. 

Below, we have discussed some of the most common seals in engineering. Within these classifications there are many variations in the cross-sectional profile for the engineering purpose; Cheshire Seals use commercial design software for machining functional seals for all applications.

PISTON SEALS

Piston seals are used as part of a hydraulic cylinder to seal in liquid. They are a vital part of a hydraulic cylinder and ensure the prevention of fluid movement across the head of the cylinder. The piston seals allow the build up of pressure on one side of the piston that powers the extension and retraction of the cylinder rod.

Piston Seals are often crafted from highly durable and malleable plastics, polyurethane and elastomers as they can withstand heat that is generated, depending on the material grade, and can consistently provide a stable and reliable seal.
