A U‑seal with an asymmetric profile for single‑action use on hydraulic pistons.
Lionsele U3 is a U-seal with an asymmetric profile, manufactured in high performance polyurethane for single-action use on hydraulic pistons. Two of these seals, installed in a back-to-back arrangement, can be used on double-acting pistons.
The lip profile of this seal is designed as an interference fit within the housing. The radial squeeze provided by this action gives efficient sealing at low pressures. In operation, the seal becomes pressure-responsive to maintain sealing forces, even at very high pressures.
In addition, the asymmetric profile of the sealing lips reduces float of the seal in the housing. This improves efficiency and reduces the pumping of fluid under the sealing lip.
Single-acting piston seal for hydraulic cylinders on general duty systems. For double-acting pistons, two separate seals can be used, but care must be taken to relieve any potential build up of internal pressure.
Suitable for use with most mineral-based hydraulic fluids at temperatures up to +100°C (+212°F). Also resistant to air, and most lubricating oils and greases. Where fire-resistant fluids of the water/oil emulsion or water/glycol types are used, please contact us for advice on temperature limits.
