  • Purpose: The seal for a pivot pin serves to create a barrier against the intrusion of contaminants, such as dirt, water, or debris, into the pivot pin assembly. This helps maintain the lubrication and functionality of the pivot mechanism.
  • Material Composition: Typically made from durable elastomeric materials such as rubber or silicone, chosen for their flexibility, resilience, and resistance to environmental factors such as moisture, heat, and chemicals.
  • Design: The seal is engineered to fit snugly around the pivot pin, forming a tight seal against the surrounding components or housing. It may feature a lip or ridge design to enhance sealing effectiveness.
  • Installation: The seal is installed onto the pivot pin during assembly, ensuring proper alignment and seating to prevent gaps or leaks. Proper installation techniques and lubrication of the seal may be required for optimal performance.
  • Maintenance: Regular inspection of the seal is essential to check for signs of wear, damage, or degradation. Worn or damaged seals should be replaced promptly to maintain effective sealing and prevent premature failure of the pivot pin assembly.
