Lionsele® U2

A compact, U‑profiled rod / gland seal that ensures sealing integrity when cylinder rod / gland deflections occur.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
  • General industry
  • Hydraulic cylinders

Lionsele U2 is a compact, U-profiled rod / gland seal manufactured in high-performance polyurethane. Its asymmetrical design ensures sealing integrity when cylinder rod / gland deflections occur.

In operation, the secondary sealing lip traps fluid behind the primary sealing lip and serves to increase lubrication. This prevents dry running, thus reducing the risk of stick-slip action. Seal life is significantly increased by the optimised fluid film conditions created beneath the primary sealing lip.

Moreover, the secondary sealing lip helps to exclude contamination from the primary sealing lip, further promoting seal life.

  • High mechanical strength polyurethane provides excellent wear resistance
  • Secondary sealing lip optimises fluid film conditions to increase seal life and reduce plant downtime
  • Easy to fit
  • Low maintenance costs

Rod and ram seal for hydraulic cylinders on general duty systems, including mobile hydraulics, injection moulding machines, and many other industrial applications.

  • Maximum operating pressure: 42 MPa (6092 psi)
  • Temperature range: -30°C to +100°C (-22°F to +212°F)
  • Maximum surface speed: 0.5 m/s (98.4 psi)

  • Precision moulded in wear-resistant polyurethane (AU/EU)

  • Suitable for use with most mineral-based hydraulic fluids at 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.

  • To suit BS ISO 5597 - Short (L1) and Medium (L2) axial length series, and BS ISO 6020-2 housings. Other sizes can be manufactured to order.
  • Fitting instructions are supplied with every seal
