S.O.S (Save Our Seals)

We see hydraulics everywhere – just a simple glance at a construction site will reveal a variety of equipment such as bulldozers and excavators – all with gleaming hydraulic pistons working all day long.

Have you ever considered the effect dirt and large particulates might have if they got into the system?seal-saver-1

It is a problem that unfortunately not enough equipment owners think about. The replacement of a hydraulic system can be very expensive and result in long equipment down times that further hurt your bottom line. However, this need not be the case. A “Seal Saver” protective sheath protects your hydraulics from particles and is a smart investment to make.

seal-saver-2A Seal Saver is a custom made plastic sheath and comes in several grades – standard ballistic nylon, kevlar, aluminized kevlar and aluminized silica cloth. The latter four grades were designed for varying degrees of high-temperature, high-abrasion applications. They flex like an “accordion” with the piston while protecting it from particulate matter.

While every Seal Saver is a custom solution – they are easy to order.
