Wipers are essential hydraulic seals
that keep contaminants and debris from getting into the cylinder through the rod. The wipers also periodically clean accumulated debris off the hydraulic rods. By preventing debris from mixing in with the hydraulic fluid, the wipers can increase the duration between maintenance checks. They can also reduce the occurrence of unscheduled maintenance. The wiper’s material is determined by its application and conditions of use. The material you choose needs to withstand the temperature range, elasticity requirements, fluid compatibility, and resilience as well as abrasion resistance of its application. Metal clad wipers are popular because they offer high wear resistance and have a longer lifespan than conventional wipers. We have a wide variety of wiper materials and styles including metal-clad, polyurethane, bronze filled, H style and D style among others. Contact our experts at MRO Supply if you have questions about the most suitable type and style of wiper for your application.
