It is important to understand the complexities of seal materials, types and designs for use in fluid power application. This session will be a primer on the basics of sealing systems and products specific to the fluid power industry. Josh will discuss general fluid power seal applications, including mounting locations and fluid compatibility. As well, machine dynamics play a part in seal selection, especially comparing both dynamic or static loads. Finally, Josh will cover how environmental factors affect seal selection, especially when there is a need for long life or resistance to extreme temperatures.
