The History of Seals
Hydraulic sealing began evolving in the 1890’s in several European countries-England, Germany, Russia and others.
Water was first fluid; drawn from streams; transported through cast iron pipes and controlled by crude valves.
Cylinders with crude stuffing boxes and pistons used various materials as pkg. Some early packing materials were animal fur, flax and/or cloth.
It wasn’t until WW-II that fluid power sealing in its present form began to develop with:
- The evolution of synthetic materials
- Self-adjusting seal designs
- Metal finishing techniques that allowed for consistent finishes
Do you know about the DAYTON PROJECT?
Part of the problem with hydraulic sealing prior to WW-II was that there were no standards for seal sizes and groove dimensions. Every manufacturer made their seals to their own dimensions. During WW-II conference held at Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH, where seal and groove dimensions and metal finishes were standardized. With standardization and improved manufacturing techniques, seal evolution really took off.
