ZP piston seal
The double-acting piston sealing set ZP consists of a rubber-fabric seal with back-up rings on both sides to prevent extrusion. The dynamic surface of the seal on the outer diameter is reinforced with a special dimensionally stable fabric. This supports the development of a lubricating film between the seal and the cylinder wall, even after long standstill periods and under high pressure. This grease deposit reduces breakaway friction and dynamic friction and thus wear of the dynamic surface of the seal. The surface structure ensures wear resistance, even in low-lube conditions. The ZP sealing set is extremely robust, even in harshest conditions such as particle contamination in the system.
Exceptionally high static and dynamic sealing performance.
Enhanced sealing performance in non-pressurized conditions.
Can also be used for single-acting applications.
Robust seal profile for harshest operating conditions.
Insensitive to contamination of the operating medium or slight damage of the sliding surfaces compared with single-part seals.
Good wear resistance.
Long service life thanks to application-optimized compounds.
Constantly low dynamic friction throughout the part’s service life.
Insensitive to extreme pressure peaks.
Improved lubrication due to pressure medium deposit in the dynamic contact area.
Extremely high extrusion resistance.
Simple fabrication of the housing.
Installation in open housings.
Range of application
Mainly used for double-acting pistons in cylinders for hydraulic roof supports and for tunneling machines.
