Wiper Seals | Scraper Seals

The function of wiper seals is to prevent dust, dirt, grains of sand and metal dwarf from penetrating into axially moving rods and plungers. Thus the development of scratches is largely prevented, guiding elements are protected and the working life of seals is extended.

Advantages Wiper Seal

  1. Small installation grooves.
  2. Minimal break-out and dynamic sliding friction. Therefore no stick-slip. Steady movement is guaranteed even at low velocities.
  3. Excellent sliding properties.
  4. High wear resistance, therefore long service life.
  5. High temperature resistance.
  6. Compatibility with nearly all media due to the high chemical resistance of the rod sealing ring, and a wide selection of O-ring compounds.
  7. Available in diameters up to 1500 mm.
