RT Dygert Corrects Leaking Cylinder at Packaging Company

A high-profile packaging company had a leaking cylinder shaft seal that was causing a recurring operational issue and safety concern.

RT Dygert worked with IBT to analyze the failure. After reviewing the situation and the seals in use, they determined that the long stroke of the cylinder—combined with a misalignment of the cylinder mount—created a severe side loading problem. This caused deformation of the existing wiper and rod seals and allowed contamination to enter the cylinder.

They determined that the existing cylinder seals were not designed to accommodate side load conditions. “Our solution was to replace the cylinder shaft seal with a design that gives the customer superior sealing properties and side load capabilities,” Blair said. “It fits into the existing seal grooves, so it’s a simple, fast, permanent seal solution.”
