Hydraulic Myth Busting

One Common Hydraulic Misconception REVEALED

A common misconception in hydraulics is the belief that seals require lubrication to function properly. In reality, they don’t. This misconception often leads to becoming complacent with unneeded maintenance of failing seals. DNC is challenging these old ways of thinking and pushing the industry further, developing hydraulic cylinders that are engineered for longevity and reduced downtime, even in the most extreme environments. By questioning conventional wisdom and embracing innovative solutions, DNC is revolutionizing the hydraulics industry.

There’s been this traditional thought process in hydraulics that seals need lubrication in order to work. What we’re able to do at DNC with the seal manufacturing as well as with the cylinder manufacturing is bring those two together. Not only bring them together but utilize industry-leading materials to be able to run the system from here up dry.

Putting redundancy in the gland incorporating mechanical load allows us to keep contamination out and oil in. We want our customers to push us more and more to keep the oil in, keep the contamination out, and provide the longest cylinder they’ve seen.
