What is a Merkel Oil Seal?

Merkel is part of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies. The oil seals of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies persuade with their durability and high efficiency. They are primarily used in pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders. Their task is to seal the retracting and extending cylinder rod, thereby preventing the pressurised operating medium from escaping from the cylinder while protecting the cylinder from impurities. An Merkel oil seal is available for every type of cylinder and application.
