Oz Seals re­leases ad­vanced com­pact seal

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

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.
