At NK Hoses, we understand the importance of having reliable and fully-functional hydraulic systems. This means that it is essential that you have the right components in place in the case of a breakdown or breakage. One component you should have on hand is the right kind of seal for your needs, which is why we offer different types of seals.

Hydraulic seals, for example, feature a non-metallic ring that is relatively soft, and the purpose of this component is to form a seal, to block or separate fluid in reciprocating motion applications. Hydraulic seals are critical in different types of machinery, which is why it is forward-thinking to have a few spare parts on hand.

There are six types of seals when it comes to hydraulic cylinders, including dust seals, piston rod seals, end cap seals, piston seals, and guide support rings, all of which have different purposes.

Seals are vastly important as they can reduce contamination caused by debris and dirt getting into the machine, and they can also prevent certain external leaks. Reliable and sturdy seals can help protect your hydraulic equipment. When you do not use any seals in your hydraulic system, it can result in excessive back pressure, which causes fractures to form. These fractures can lead to material or fluid being lost over time, along with expensive damages and leaks.

If you have any additional questions about all the types of seals we have on offer, or the related services we provide, you can contact a member of the NK Hoses team today. In addition, we offer an on-site hose repair or replacement service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year, which means we can minimise downtime, as we can get you back up and running as soon as possible.
