The Hallite 844 double-lipped, snap-in rod wiper is developed specifically for cylinders in demanding off-highway applications and designed for use with venting U-rings, such as the Hallite 663 or Hallite 673 rod seal. The design minimises the oil transfer out of the ram on the cylinder rod by collecting traces of fluid passing the rod seal.

The unique feature of the Hallite 844 is the Umbrella Wiper Technology™, which is a protective debris guard flap on the wiping lip that entirely covers the gland housing and prevents the water/slurry trap that is common with conventional wipers. This feature offers added protection to the integrity of the hydraulic system by reducing corrosion and preventing the ingress of contamination into the wiper housing groove and hydraulic cylinder gland which will result in increased system life.

The standard Hallite 844 is moulded in Hythane® 361, Hallite’s high-performance polyurethane, for excellent durability in service. Some sizes of the Hallite 844 are offered in a Hythane® 181 polyurethane with a textured wiping lip to provide improved dry rod performance, particularly for long stroking cylinder applications.
