AV Wiper Seal
The AV wiper protects the hydraulic system against, dust, dirt, moisture and other
The moulded dirt shield on the wiper prevents the migration of moisture underneath
the wiper in the groove. The common occurrence of corrosion in the groove can thus
be avoided. In applications with a vertically positioned piston rod head the dirt shield
to protect the seal groove is particularly effective. Water running down the piston rod
is diverted and does not enter the wiper groove. Due to the press fit in the housing
and the pressure relief drill hole the risk of the wiper being pushed out of the cylinder
housing is minimised.

Range of application
The AV wiper can be used in all hydraulic cylinders and is particularly well-suited for
|Operating temperature||-35 °C to +100 °C|
|Sliding speed||≤ 2 m/s|
The standard material is Ultrathan® P5008, a Parker compound based on polyurethane with a hardness of approx. 93 Shore A. Compared to off-the-shelf polyurethane
grades it is characterized by higher thermal and hydrolysis resistance and a lower
The profile AV double lip wiper ring can easily be snapped into grooves of simple
design. Any contact of the wiper lip with piston rod eyes or other connecting parts
should be avoided.
However, we recommend the wiper lip to be out-side the housing, so that the wipedoff dirt falls off.
A ring-shaped area for improved abutting of the dirt shield should be provided at the
front side of the cylinder.
