Cylinder Upgrade Program
Chesterton Customseal Cylinder Upgrade Program applies a systematic approach to improve the reliability of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders during the repair and upgrade process. A combination of high-performance seals and components in cylinders can extend Mean Time Between Repair (MTBR) while helping reduce overall equipment costs.
Examples of cylinder performance improvements:
AWC860 Cherry Polymer
Choosing the right material for your chosen seal design can significantly impact the reliability of your hydraulic and pneumatic equipment. Chesterton Customseal is known across industries for offering state-of-the-art polymer technologies that have been field-tested and proven worldwide in the most demanding sealing applications.
|The AWC860 is Chesterton’s world-renowned high-performance thermoset material manufactured with a proprietary process.
Guarantees better hydrolysis resistance in extreme conditions. On average, 35% to 60% better for extended periods.
In addition, it allows retention of the mechanical properties, better from 25% to 40% at high temperatures and prolonged periods.
Our world-renowned proprietary thermoset material, AWC860, is widely considered to be one of the highest-performing materials on the market today. This advanced seal material offers high abrasion and low compression set for superior performance. It is ideal for use in hydraulic or pneumatic applications.
Your first line of defence against contamination:
- Positive rake lip design
- Outstanding protection against particle ingress
- Prolongs service life
- Made to order
- Sizes made to international standards
Wiper failures are a major cause of diminished reliability in Hydraulic & Pneumatic Cylinders. – Choice of the right Wiper is critical.
- Single-acting, U-Cup design, zero leakage throughout the entire operating range
- Abrasion-resistant design, excellent performance in hydraulic applications
- Lip geometry stabilises the seal to prevent twisting and eases installation
- Made to order manufacturing flexibility
Dual Component System for Bi-Directional Sealing:
- PTFE and high-performance polymers offer improved performance
- Compression seal design
- Dramatically reduced friction and eliminated the “Stick-Slip” effect
- Excellent chemical- and heat-resistant
