Rod Wipers

Types and Definitions

Rod Wipers

 

The main function of the Rod Wiper is to keep the rod and cylinder clean and free from foreign matter; thus preventing premature failure.  The Rod Wiper is not a pressure sealing element, yet it avoids possible abrasive effects which may result if contaminates were to reach the sealing and rod bearing elements.

 

Style WD Rod Wipers

 

One-piece snap-in type rod wiper scrapers for heavy duty applications.  WD rod wipers are continuous (not split) and conform with wear and side motion for effective wiping action over the entire life span of the seal.  Part numbers listed below are molded from 90 durometer urethane for maximum strength and abrasion resistance.  American Seal & Packing also stocks selected sizes in 90 durometer fluoroelastomer.  Please inquire.
 

Style WAN Rod Wipers                     

Designed for light duty applications where style WD wipers are not required.  Interchangeable with corresponding dash numbers of MS28776 wiper rings.  Consult American Seal & Packing for AN6231 retrofit.  Part numbers listed below are molded from 90 durometer urethane for maximum strength and abrasion resistance.  American Seal & Packing also stocks selected sizes in 90 durometer fluoroelastomer.  Please inquire.

Style WH Rod Wipers                       

 

Designed for medium duty applications and can provide both wiping and sealing action in one component in low pressure systems.  The external lip scrapes foreign matter form the rod, and the other lips act as an effective pressure seal in low pressure applications.  This rod wiper can also be used as a secondary seal to trap slight leakage from the primary seal.  This creates a very dry rod system.  Molded from 90 Durometer Urethane for maximum strength abrasion resistance.

Style WK Rod Wipers     Double lip design provides the ultimate in wiper action to remove foreign material from the exposed rod while still maintaining an adequate lubricating film.  It protects both the rod and the primary seal. 

Metal Clad Wipers These rod wipers are molded form urethane and encased in a heavy duty metal case.  This gives them exceptional abrasion resistance and outstanding endurance under difficult operating conditions.  Highly effective in removing dirt and contaminants from the rod.  The dimensions for Metal Clad Wipers stocked by American Seal & Packing are listed below.  For availability of additional sizes not listed, please inquire.
