Mandy, continues: “If the primary seal does its job perfectly for an extended time, no lubricant goes past it. This generates dry running conditions for the second seal and, should it activate, creates wear. Lubrication Management solves this issue by balancing the risk of lubricant leakage to ensure both the performance of the primary seal and extend the life of the secondary seal.”
Extending life and more developments
Lubrication Management technology incorporates rounded sealing edges that lower contact pressure and allow just enough fluid to enter the system to sufficiently lubricate the piston rod. This increases the consistency of the tribological system between the sealing configuration and its counter surfaces, reducing friction and wear, and significantly extending application life, while increasing robustness and reliability.
Though Lubrication Management represents a revolutionary step in fluid power sealing, the future holds even more exciting innovations.
