Hydraulic seals are used to prevent leakage in hydraulic systems. Seals work by providing a seal between the mating part’s inside diameter, and the inserted component’s outside diameter. Seals can be made from various materials, including rubber, plastic, metal, or ceramic materials. Hydraulic seal replacement is not uncommon for most industrial plants that use hydraulic equipment daily.
What should I know about this?
The most common symptom of a bad seal is leakage. If you suspect that your seals need replacement, there are a few telltale signs to look for. One sign is oil on the ground below the machine. Another indication is if the device is not performing as it should and fluid leaks from it. Seal replacement can be a costly process, so it’s essential to know when the seals need to be replaced to avoid unnecessary downtime or equipment damage.
When Should You Replace your Seals?
- When they are visibly damaged or worn
- When they do not provide an adequate seal anymore
