This paper investigates a new sealing system for sliding applications in pneumatic cylinders based on non-contact sealing. By "reverse" assembling the common lip seal, the back of the seal is exposed to the supply pressure and the lip is turned towards the pressure discharge side. When exposed to sealing pressure the lip yields, resulting in reduced effective surface area with consequent less friction and wear, providing an air leakage path the flow rate of which depends on the radial stiffnessdoi:10.2495/td120051 fatcat:gskyfqp6sfdzvoguztjvz4pzoi
