Oil seals are compression seals that prevent oil and other types of lubricants from escaping grease compartments in industrial machines. They are often used in hydraulic systems where lubrication and abrasion prevention are crucial for continuous operation. A hydraulic oil seal is an O-ring coated with a metal casing or spring. It prevents lubricants from leaking out and mixing with other liquids in adjacent parts of the machine.
Oil seals are designed to fit varying types of equipment. Oil seals are used in precision bearings and specific machine components. Hydraulic oil seals can be installed as static seals for non-moving machine parts or as dynamic seals for constantly moving machine parts. Aside from lubricant leakage prevention, oil seals also ensure that the mating parts of an assembly do not corrode. Metal corrosion can happen when aggressive chemicals mix with oil. The resulting mixture can lead to the formation of abrasive substances that accelerate corrosion. Oil seals prevent corrosion by ensuring that mating parts are totally sealed with compression.
Many industries rely on oil seals for lubricant sealing and machine protection. Oil seals are pliable and tear-resistant compression seals, which are used in the automotive, oil, gas, energy, and manufacturing industries.
