Fluid Power Seal Design Guide, EPS 5370EPS Division publishes definitive resource guide and product catalog for Fluid Power sealingEPS Division has published its long awaited Fluid Power SealDesign Guide which is slated to become the definitive resourceguide for seal selection in applications for pneumatic and low, medium and heavy duty hydraulics.The 424 page guide contains application guidelines plus quickreference and in-depth product descriptions, key material offerings,gland dimensions, technical data and availability for 64 sealingdevice profiles. The detailed Engineering section adeptly coverstopics in sealing theory such as: Static vs. Dynamic SealingLeakage ControlLip vs. Squeeze sealsEffects of Lip GeometriesPressure Effects & ExtrusionSeal WearSeal StabilitySurface SpeedCompression SetInfluence of TemperatureFluid Power SealDesign GuideCatalog EPS 5370Seal designers will appreciate the completeness of technical information contained inside which addresses engineering questions which impact appropriate seal selection. The materials guide is the most completein the fluid power industry, covering over 60 material types.Hardware Surface Finish Guidelines section is “do not miss” reading to detailed engineering data,material specifications, installation guides and checklist for seal design consideration you won’t want to missreading “one of the most comprehensive and clear-cut dissertations on hardware surface finish” according to top industry suppliers.Not sure which fluid power seal profile you should choose over another? The new Design Guide makes iteasy to steer you in the right direction. Decision Trees are located in each product section of the catalog toget you started. If you have questions keep reading and navigate through the profile technical information.If you still need help, give Zatkoff a call at (248) 478-2400 and ask to speak with a customer service person.We’re here to help.We are sure you will find the guide invaluable and an effective tool in enabling Parker/Zatkoff to be thesingle source supplier (both OEM and MRO) for customers’ fluid power seal requirements.Page 2 of 7Copyright 2008 Zatkoff Seals and Packings, Farmington Hills, MI, All Rights Reserved

Material Offering for Fluid Power SealingMaterials offered by Parker for Fluid Power profiles include the following: ParkerMaterialCodeMaterialTrade Name(Color)Typical Applications& DescriptionThermoplastics — Elastomers & Engineered Resins Thermoplastic Elastomers — TPU, PolyurethanesThermoset Elastomers — Rubber (Nitrile, Nitroxile,P4300A90 PolyureProprietary compound offeringEPR, FKM, etc.)thaneextended temperature range,Resilon HThigh reboundPTFE — Non-filled & filled TFE materials.Parker is able to achieve optimal physical properties of itsthermoplastic elastomers through controlling all variablesduring in-house material development and compounding processes. We are committed to offering the highestquality sealing materials. Many fluid power profiles areavailable in multiple materials.The following tables provide a short description of typicalapplications as well as typical service temperature ranges.When selecting a seal material, temperature is but one ofseveral key factors.Service temperature ranges are based primarily on laboratory and service tests. They do not take into account allvariables which may be encountered. Therefore, it isalways advisable to test the material under actual serviceconditions before specifying. If this is not practical, testsshould be devised that simulate service conditions asclosely as possible.ServiceTemperatureRange F ( C)-65 to 275(-54 to 135)(Tan)P4301A90PolyurethaneResilon WRFor water or petroleum basedfluids-35 to 225(-37 to 107)Offers higher extrusion resistance for seals and anti-extrusion devices-65 to 275(-54 to 135)Formulation resists internalheat generated throughhysteresis, ideal for shockapplications-65 to 275(-54 to 135)General purpose industrialpolyurethane offering highabrasion resistance-65 to 200(-54 to 93)General purpose industrialpolyurethane offering highextrusion resistance-65 to 250(-54 to 121)Formulated with internallubricants for lower friction tohelp reduce heat build up-65 to 225(-54 to 107)Offers good abrasion andextrusion resistance withexcellent rebound-65 to 200(-54 to 93)Enhanced properties over4615 to improve sealing capabilities from lower compression set-65 to 200(-54 to 93)Formulated for an improvedlow temperature range andhigher resilience than 4615-70 to 200(57 to 93)Improved abrasion, extrusionand compression resistanceas well as higher temp. than4700-31 to 230(-35 to 110)(Aqua Blue)P4304D60PolyurethaneResilon ER(Brown)P4311A90PolyurethaneResilon 4700A90Polyurethane(Green)PTFE Fluid Power seal profiles are available in a variety ofnon-filled and filled materials.P5065A88Polyurethane(Dark Blue)P6000A90Polyurethane(Dark Gray)Page 4 of 7Copyright 2008 Zatkoff Seals and Packings, Farmington Hills, MI, All Rights Reserved
