Symmetrical piston/rod seals are designed to seal the pressurized hydraulic fluid against the atmosphere or between two pressurized spaces.


  •  Symmetrical, single acting piston/rod seal, no interference on the ID or OD.
  •  Preload effected through round Helicoil-spring which ensures high pressure on the sealing edges.
  • Excellent static and dynamic sealing performance.
  •  Excellent sealing performance in low and high pressure ranges.
  •  Useable for short and long stroke lengths.
  • Low friction in dry running or poor lubrication conditions.
  • Also used for gas applications.
  • Negligible tendency to “stick-slip” effect, small break away loads.


Reciprocating and swivelling pistons in hydraulic cylinders, plungers. Chemical and pharmaceutical industry, aggressive fluids and high temp. Max. pressure 160 bar, max. speed 5 m/s linear; 0,1m/s rotating.


Installation in open housing, snap-in installation possible in special designed housings.
