Valves regulate, direct and control the flow of a fluid through various passageways from areas of higher pressure to lower pressure. There are numerous valve configurations that involve both rotary and linear movement.
Fittings & Connectors
Engines & Controls
The engine delivers power to drivetrain components thus forming the powertrain of the vehicle. Engines can have a variety of configurations, but most involve rotary seals for keeping oil and grease within the system.
Static seals and custom molded parts are found throughout and provide multiple functions such as preventing contamination ingress or separating fluids. The V-Ring is typically used to prevent contamination from entering the engine components through axial faces.
Accumulators are used for storing energy within a hydraulic system via compressed fluid. In many instances, this involves the separation of hydraulic fluid and nitrogen gas thus requiring leak-tight piston seals to ensure fluid separation. Wear rings are used for centralization while Static seals keep both the hydraulic fluid and gas contained within the accumulator to prevent energy loss.
Hydraulic power units comprise of multiple elements such as motors or engines, pumps, and valves. Together they form the primary component of a hydraulic circuit and thus contain numerous types of seals.
