Rod Seal U-Cup – Symmetrical – OR Loaded – AE Ring



High-pressure capability and wide temperature range

Excellent fluid compatibility including water-based fluids (H-PU)

Exceptional abrasion resistance


The 163 series rod seal is typically used in heavy-duty applications, where pressure spike and large extrusion gaps exist.

Typical applications include:

  • Mining
  • Mobile Hydraulics
  • Hydraulic Cylinder Rebuild
  • Agricultural Hydraulics
  • Construction Equipment

The 163 series rod seal features high-grade polyurethane. Standard materials are MP03 machined H-PU, NBR O-ring and polyacetal backup ring. To suit a variety of applications, the series is also available in NBR, H-NBR, EPDM and high temperature-resistant FPM.
