Bi-Directional Rod Seal
Capable of sealing low to high pressures from both sides with a small footprint. Compact and most economical double-acting rod seal for most bi-directional sealing applications.

|Additional standard materials available: High-performance polyurethanes, NBR (Nitrile), FKM, Viton®, HNBR, EPDM, Aflas®, Hytrel®, Silicone, low- and high-temperature, FDA-compliant seal material grades, PTFE, filled PTFE®, engineered thermoplastics and proprietary specialized Duralast™, Duraloy™, and Permachem™ materials.
|Important Note: Maximum values above depend on extrusion gap, clearances, seal material, media, temperatures, pressures, surface speed, dynamic running surface finish and working environment. Seals cannot be operated at their upper ratings at the same time. Pressure ratings can be increased by reducing clearances.
