What is fluid power?
Fluid power is the generation, control and transmission of power using fluid or gases under pressure. Hydraulic fluid power systems use oil or water, whereas pneumatic systems use air or other gases. These systems require the correct seals to lock-in compressed air or liquids insuring the designed motion and force is achieved, while at the same time keeping contaminants out.
R.F.Carlson supplies a wide variety of seals used in these applications, from piston or rod seals to wipers and wear guides. We offer all of the sealing products to keep your fluid power system smooth-running.
