Loaded U-cups are single direction piston seals, which means they can only seal with pressure coming from one direction. Two loaded U-cups must be installed for dual direction hydraulic piston applications since the sealing method is single directional.
The lip is a straight lip design which gives the loaded U-cup good sealability, while it is also excellent at contamination removal away from the sealing lip. The loaded U-cup's overall shape is a large rectangle that significantly adds to the seal's stability. Also, the loaded U-cup, like most polyurethane seals, features a four-lobed ring energizer designed to activate the seal at lower pressures.
