Seals and fluids

Seal technology

Van Halteren Technologies has developed a Seal Matrix for all kind of applications and piston rod surfaces.

The most critical aspect of cylinders is the combination of different technologies. Optimal interaction between rod surface, hydraulic fluid and seal configuration is essential. Tribology analyzes the friction, lubrication and wear of interacting surfaces in relative motion, guaranteeing improved lifetime.

Seal Configuration

Some seal configurations are able to withstand the complete extrusion gap, as well as being fit for speeds of up to 15 m/s, being useable for low-friction applications and making use of excellent wear properties. Other seal configurations are adjustable, maintenance friendly and non-sensitive to dirt.

Hydraulic Fluid

Van Halteren Technologies recognizes the importance of customizing fluids that are adapted to specific requirements and related to used seal and surface technologies. Therefore, chemical resistance to seal materials, lubrication and fluid performance is extensively tested.
