Oz Seals releases advanced compact seal
Oz Seals has developed an advanced compact sealing profile named GS8BM. The GS8BM is particularly economic in its need for space. It is an ideal choice for sealing rods and rams with light to medium load. Use of this seal can enable cost saving cylinder designs.
The new seal profile consists of a Wifflon U-ring with another elastomer part. The sealing edge composed of Nitrile Rubber or Viton ensures excellent sealing properties especially in the low pressure range. The Wifflon part reduces wear due to its triple lubricated properties, ensuring low friction. It also protects against gap extrusion, thereby ensuring a long service life. While Oz Seals recommends this seal is made in the standard combination of Wifflon and Nitrile Rubber, other rubbers can also be used, such as Aflas Extreme and Carbonfilled Teflon.
Other characteristics of the GS8BM compact seal feature a particularly short installation length, allowing it to be easily fitted into groovetype housings. Seals from the GS8BM series are approved to ISO 5597 standard. The range of sizes have been released to Sealnet. www.demm.co.nz/reader-enquiry #150504a.
