Fluid Power Applications

Fluid power is a hydraulic term for a controlled, generated power that occurs when fluids are pressurized. Fluid power systems are incredibly efficient and usually require no power at all, and are thus safer due to the lack of sparks, fire, explosions and risk of electrical shock. Fluid power systems are becoming very widespread because of the high-volumetric efficiency and high-pressure capability. Most self-propelled wheeled vehicles have hydraulically-operated or pneumatically-operated brakes as mobile applications of fluid power become more and more prevalent.

Sealing Devices offers Parker spring-energized seals for fluid power equipment sealing applications. Such applications provide reliability in hydraulic and pneumatic systems, and are crucial to the dependability of these systems. Sealing Devices also offers a variety of highly engineered and technical spring-energized seals and solutions.
