4 Seals for Reducing Contamination in Hydraulic Systems

Contamination in hydraulic systems is usually caused by particulates of abrasives, including dirt, sand, metal flakes or slivers that enter the system. Foreign particles can severely damage hydraulic system components, reduce efficiency and ultimately damage pumps, motors, cylinders, and other critical parts within the system.

The primary solution to these issues is the use of proper seals to reduce or even prevent contamination in hydraulic systems.
