O-Ring activated asymmetric PTFE piston seal, low friction. for extreme lowor high speed.suitable for positioning functions. PS 08 can be used where a sealing piston has pressure on one side, amongst others, in standar-dised housings ac- cording to ISO 7425/1. Rod diameters in agreement with ISO 3320. Very high re- sistance to pressure and hardness, good thermal conductivity, very good protec- tion against extrusion, high resistance to abrasion, low friction, free of stick-slip.

category of profile
machined or molded/standard/trade product.
the PS 08-B seal is designed for use as a piston seal – either single or double acting where two seals are used ‘back to back’
area of application: hydraulics
- reciprocating rods on hydraulic cylinders,small swiveling motion permissible.
- as piston seal for small permissible frictional forces or if smooth running is required.
- for heavy-dutyoperating conditions, profile K08-ES is preferred.
the calculation program is based on mounting spaces according to ISO 7425, part 1. intermediate sizes are possible, with an O-ring for standard sizes. for deviating dimensions, use PS 08. attention must be given to a balanced ratio between sealing part and preload ele- ment.
PS 08-B profiles are composite piston seals designed to seal pressurised space against the atmosphere; mainly for reciprocating movements. the design is based on application in standard hydraulic systems with conventional hydraulic oils. the operating parameters are as defined in the sealing data sheet and material data. requirements deviating from these parameters can be met to a certain degree by changing the geometry in the software program.

the stated operation conditions represent general indications. it is recommended not to use all maximum values simultaneously. surface speed limits apply only to the presence of adequate lubrication film.

for detailed information regarding chemical resistance please refer to our “list of resistance”. for decreased leackage rates elastomer materials (polyure-
thane or rubber) in other sealing systems are to be preferred.
note on special materials:
as temperature limit and chemical resistance are determined by the preload element, the temperature range can be increased and the resis-
tance to chemical influences improved, if a special material is used for the preload element.

the above data are maximum value and can’t be used at the same time. e.g. the maximum operating speed depend on material type, pressure, tem- perature and gap value. temperature range also dependent on medium.
the table refers to a operating temperature of 80°C. temperatures below may increase the safe extrusion gap slightly, at temperatures above
80 °C, the gap dimensions has to be reduced or a stronger profile selected.
for extrusion gap sizes resulting from tolerance pair H8/f8 pressure ranges above 400 bar can be reached in special cases, influences due
to thermal expansion have to be considered. we recommend to contact our technical department.

mode of installation
in case of closed grooves, it is not recommended to slip the seal over the piston by hand (uneven material deformation in the sealing part). after the O-Ring is placed into the groove, the sealing part should be stretched over a installation cone by using a sleeve (assembly aid tools).
a recovery of the sealing part with a calibrating sleeve is advisable, however, a special shaped insertion chamfer on the cylinder barrel can also be designed (danger of tilting).
values for “c” see insertion chamfer.
recommended mounting space:
in order to avoid damage to the piston seal during installation, the piston and the housing is to be chamfered and rounded as shown in the “recommended mounting space” drawing. the size of chamfer depends on the seal type and profile width.
|cs (mm)||c (mm)|
|α = 15⁰ … 20⁰||α = 20⁰ … 30⁰|
instead of a chamfer, the piston can also be designed with a radius. recommended size of the radius is equal to size of chamfer (R=c).
seal & housing recommendations
please note that we are able to produce those profiles to your specific need or any non standard housing. for detail measurements, please see Jet seal pars catalog…
the ratio between nominal width and seal height should be in accordance to ISO 7425 part 1. we recommend the following values:
|ØD [mm]||ØD [mm]||L [mm]||cs = (ØD – Ød)/2 [mm]|
|8 ~ 14,9||ØD – 4,9||2,2||2.45|
