1 Scope
This document specifies the dimensions and associated tolerances for a series of hydraulic cylinder piston seal housings to accommodate elastomer‑energized, plastic‑faced seals used in reciprocating applications. This document does not stipulate details of seal design, since the manner of construction of seals varies with each manufacturer. The design and material of the seals, and any associated anti‑extrusion components, are determined by conditions such as temperature and pressure. This document only applies to the dimensional characteristics of products manufactured in accordance with this document. It does not apply to their functional characteristics.

5.2 Axial length
For axial lengths for the nominal piston diameters, see Table 3.
If the extrusion gap exceeds the capabilities of the plastic‑faced material to bridge such a gap, length L 2 should be selected and back‑up rings (anti‑extrusion rings) used (see Clause 7).
5.3 Radial depth
5.3.1 For radial depths, see Table 3.
NOTE This document includes an alternative seal housing radial depth for bore diameters where D ≥ 25 mm.
5.3.2 The larger radial depths shall be selected where higher stresses or wider tolerances are involved.
Consultation with the manufacturer, however, is recommended when making the appropriate selection.
6 Dimensions and tolerances
Seal housing dimensions and tolerances shall be selected from Table 3.
7 Extrusion gap
7.1 The extrusion gap (g, see Figure 1) is determined by the bore diameter and adjacent metal components on either side of the seal. NOTE 1 The extrusion gap varies considerably depending upon use or non‑use of non‑metallic bearings on the piston. NOTE 2 Maximum value for the extrusion gap is achieved when the piston is in contact with one side of the cylinder or bearing (i.e. D-d 3 – see Figure 1). NOTE 3 The extrusion gap is widened by the expansion of the cylinder due to internal pressure.
7.2 It is recommended that details concerning the extrusion gap and need for non‑extrusion rings be the subject of consultation between the housing designer and seal manufacturer.
