Challenge

In Korea, a metal stamping manufacturer reported ram leakage and a short seal life in the 6,500-ton master cylinder and return cylinders. The original stacked v-ring set (8 rings/set) previously used only lasted six months. The client wanted to increase MTBR from 6 months to 12 months. The delivery time for the current seal was three months, and the customer also wanted to reduce the lead time.

Solution

Chesterton specialist recommended the unique Chesterton® 11K split seal with dual material combination and spacer (dual component, split stacked set for hydraulic sealing).

The Chesterton® patented 11K EZ Stack Pack is a single acting, two-piece split stacked set that employs a negative rake lip profile to optimize operating performance while easing installation into the stuffing box cavity. The unique, split design, made up of two components, eliminates the need for equipment disassembly and shimming and is recommended for use in hydraulic cylinders and presses.
