AHP Seals utilizes a nonsymmetrical design in which the diameter of the seal is oversized for the groove diameter. Oversizing creates a hoop pressure resulting in higher static sealing force on the seal in the gland, which aids in stability and helps to limit the rocking motion of the seal as the rod cycles, which in turn can reduce fluid seepage.
