Regardless of the industry you are in, when manufacturing mechanical equipment, you know that optimal performance and long service life are vital to your products’ success in the market. Your customers rely on you to manufacture machinery that can be used in extreme situations, especially outdoors, without any complications or breakdowns. In order to guarantee customer satisfaction, you should be adding oil seals to all the equipment you manufacture. ASA OIL SEALS CO., LTD. is a hydraulic seals manufacturer that these seals will keep your machinery functioning at top efficiency.
(1) The Function of the Oil Seals
ASA is a manufacturer of lip-shaped oil seal which are one of the common styles of contact oil seals, and used to protect shafts and bearings from ingress of dirt and foreign matter and egress of oil or grease. It generally consists of an outer circular metal part and an inner flexible member that does the actual sealing and is bonded to the metal part by chemical adhesive agents. The bonded seal has no loose parts to allow leakage of oil or ingress of any contaminants. This kind of seal is more accurate, and can easily be fitted into a smaller space.
It is a device that is used to prevent the leakage of lubricating oil in mechanical equipment by closing the spaces between the moving and stationary components of the equipment. Oil seals are also used in precision bearings to maintain lubricants in the bearings and prevent corrosive moisture from entering the bearings. Oil seals are also known as rubber oil seals, oil gaskets, or dirt seals. Now that you understand what these are to the health of your products, followings are the advantages you need to know about them.
(2) Advantages of Oil Seals
They are used to close off tiny spaces between moving and stationary parts in equipment, and most often achieved using a garter or oil seal spring that ensures the seal remains tight once the rubber begins to wear. Contaminants that enter the components that allow your machinery to move can cause damage that will then need to be corrected through maintenance. Without oil seals, your products can leak fluid or become non-functional because of trapped dirt and contaminants. Your customers will need to pay additional costs to fix contaminated machinery components, and you will be likely to hear complaints and get bad reviews because of this.
The oil seals come in various sizes depending on the equipment capacities, and these seals fit on various valves, pipes, and any other openings where the leakages of lubricating oil need to be prevented.
They are used to perform two important roles; for example, to hold the oil in place and help in lubricating the machine’s moving parts by ensuring there is no lubricant leakage, and also to ensure that harmful contaminants do not let it leak in various parts of the equipment.
ASA products allow your equipment to function reliably and consistently, so you do not have to worry about the breaking down. This means that you can guarantee top-notch quality in the equipment you produce, which will inevitably lead to customer satisfactions. Using an oil seal, you will be able to guarantee a longer service life, simpler assembly if applicable, and reduce friction in the mechanical areas. It provides protection in virtually all types of equipment.
(3) ASA Oil Seals
ASA offers O ring seals which are used in all hydraulic systems, pumps, pistons, and pipe connections, etc. They are especially beneficial to machinery that will be out in extreme weathers or fluid environments where the risks of contaminants entering the vital components of your equipment are higher. Hydraulic seals are useful in many industries, such as in automotive and manufacturing. Regardless of the uniqueness of your equipment design, you will be able to find single or double lip seals with over a hundred special profiles to meet your needs.
