Rod seals

Rod seals

(OP)
I am having trouble finding a supplier for rod seals for a hydraulic press

Can anyone recommend a supplier please?





RE: Rod seals

That is a cup seal, and there are many sources of supply. It is quite possible that the press manufacturer had the seals custom made to their design so that they are the only easy source of supply. That provides recurring future business for the company at very good margins.

RE: Rod seals

(OP)
this is a very old machine and I do not know the manufacturer
it is a rod seal U type, it is installed to seal the rod
cup seal is the seal for the piston?

RE: Rod seals

You need to talk with a hydraulic seal vendor, give them approximate dimensions and they can find a seal for you. These are very common seals and the only thing they may need is the fluid type and temperature so they can select the correct seal composition.
