James Walker caters for these needs at every industrial level with three complete families of seals, and a patented installation technique that avoids costly dismantling.
Hydraulic Sealing Products
Our family of hydraulic sealing components provides the optimum sealing solutions for almost every hydraulic application - from the most accurate instruments and control actuators up to the heaviest forging and extrusion presses.
Each product has been specially developed and proven to give:
- Optimum equipment performance
- Reduced leakage
- Low friction operation
- Long trouble-free operating life.
The seemingly humble 'O' ring is an exceptionally versatile sealing device. Applications ranging from garden hose couplings to critical aerospace duties make it the world's most popular volume produced seal.
The packed gland is an exceptionally reliable fluid sealing device that is simple to install and maintain. Not only is it highly versatile, but also remarkably cost effective in both plant downtime and materials - especially when compared to complex alternatives.
Our constant advances in materials and lubricants, product design and manufacturing techniques, keep us at the forefront of compression packing technology. We therefore bring you one of the widest ranges of packings to match the temperatures, pressures and speeds of your most modern fluid handling systems, and economical packings for your older plant.
