The wiper is a very important component in the whole system with a declared objective:
to keep away all external threats which could damage the sealing system.
Dirt, shavings, scale, moisture, etc. are enemies of the inside of all technical systems.
Using wipers prevents external contamination reaching the interior of the system.
Factors for the selection of wiper geometry
- Only wiper or wiper sealing function
- What type of contamination came from the external area
- Maximum sliding velocity
- Spatial requirements in the construction sector
- Open or closed installation area
- Min./max. temperature range
- Exact specification of medium (important for selection of the material)
