g03068977

Acceptable storage practice for sealing journals

Sealing journals should be stored with a sealing journal cap and in conformance with the
storage and shelf life as per Contamination Control Guidelines, PEBJ0002, "Caterpillar
Dealer Contamination Control Compliance Guide". A cap provides protection to the critical
areas of the sealing journal. The use of a cap reduces the risk of damage and contamination
to the part.
Illustration 2 shows an example of best storage practice of a sealing journal.
Illustration 3 shows the minimum acceptable alternative to a cap.

Bore Storage
Bores should be stored in a manner that will reduce contamination and risk damage to the
inside of the bore. Storage should also conform to Contamination Control Guidelines,
PEBJ0002, "Caterpillar Dealer Contamination Control Compliance Guide".

CLEANLINESS
Seal Cleanliness
Lip seals should be assembled in the housing only as needed. Building the inventory of lip
seal sub assemblies should be avoided because they can be easily contaminated or
damaged. Any work in process should be covered and protected from contamination and
damage.

Illustration 5

g03068979

Maintained tool

Seal bore and tooling should be free of nicks, burrs, and contamination as shown in the
Illustration 4 and Illustration 5.
Seal bore, seal tooling, and sealing journals/contact surfaces should be wiped clean with
lint-free wipe to remove contamination.
Presence of rust preventative coatings should also be removed from the seal bore and
sealing journals/contact surfaces as the rust preventative coatings may interfere with the
sealing ability of the seal.
Tool return marks in the bore must be avoided as leakage can occur at the seal outside
diameter.

Tooling Cleanliness
Tooling cleanliness should conform to Contamination Control Guidelines, PEBJ0002,
"Caterpillar Dealer Contamination Control Compliance Guide".
To help protect the seal tooling from damage, it is important that proper lip-seal tooling
storage needs to be provided. Placing seal tooling on a metal surface can severely damage
the tool due to metal-to-metal contact.

Seal tooling should be stored on a soft, forgiving surface such as nylon, high-density
polyethylene (HDPE), and so on. Proper storage facilities must be provided to assembly
area to reduce risk of damage to tool.

Tooling Storage Cleanliness


Tooling storage cleanliness should conform to Contamination Control Guidelines,
PEBJ0002, "Caterpillar Dealer Contamination Control Compliance Guide".
Press tables and tooling storage surfaces should be clean and free from contamination such
as dirt, filings, or other debris.

HANDLING
Handling of the Seal

Ver imagen

Illustration 6

g03068997

Proper handling of lip seal

Many seals are pre-lubricated. Do not remove the lubrication on pre-lubricated seals.
Lip seals should only be handled on the outer edge. To avoid contamination, the sealing
surface should not be touched. Refer to Illustration 6 for proper handling.
Many seals come with a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coating on the seal. Do not remove
the coating or damage the coating in any way. Handle with proper and adequate care.
Note: PTFE is more commonly referred to as Teflon from Dupont.

Handling of Mating Components


Lip seals are sensitive to the quality of the mating components. Mating component surfaces
should be checked for the presence of defects that would compromise sealing, and not be
used if such defects are found. These defects include:

Burrs

Nicks/Large scratches

Contamination such as: paint, metal shavings (for example: machining chips) and
dirt

Liquid contamination (grease, and so on.)

Other debris

Poor surface finish or porosity

Visual Out-of-Roundness

Clean cardboard or plastic separators are recommended to prevent damage during the
transportation and storage of finish-mating components.
Mating components should be handled in such a way to reduce the risk of damage or
contamination.

Assembly Aids
Refer to the D & A manual for instruction in the use of any assembly aids.
The fluid being sealed is the proper lubricant for use with lip seals and the mating
components of lip seals.
It will not be necessary to obtain an assembly aid to remove supplier-applied sealant buildup if proper tooling care and contamination control techniques are followed.

Assembly Tooling
Types of Lip Seal Tooling
When installing lip-type seals, it is important that proper tooling and tooling care need to be
followed.
Refer to the respective D & A manual for the tooling used to install the lip-type seal.

Tooling - Care
Before using the tooling check the tool for damage. Tools with damage such as nicks,
gouges, missing material, or deformation must be replaced immediately.

Tools should be cleaned daily to remove contamination. If contamination is present, use a


clean lint-free wipe to remove the debris. To maintain cleanliness and prevent tool damage,
storage fixtures should be cleaned as a part of daily 5S activities.
Note: 5S activities refer to Caterpillar Production System (CPS) For Dealers related to
"Sort, Set, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain".
For more details refer to:
Referencehttps://dealer.cat.com/cda/files/2498665/7/030%20R_Module
%2017%205S_Visual%20Workplace%20v3.ppt
Do not use a chemical remover to remove supplier-applied sealant build-up from the seal
tooling. Various chemicals can deteriorate the coatings on the lip-seals.
Refer to "Loctite Maintenance and Solutions Heavy Equipment Guide for Cat Dealers" to
determine which chemical removers can be used.
Cleaned tooling should be stored in ergonomically designed designated areas that prevent
damage to the tools.

Tooling - Inspection
All tooling should be inspected before use for damage. An improperly maintained tool can
cause seal damage and increase the risk of leaking due to improper seating of the seal.
Tools with damage such as sharp edges, nicks, burrs, "mushroomed" driver heads
(applicable to lip seal drivers), should be reconditioned or replaced prior to further use.

Tooling - Storage
To help protect the seal tooling from damage, it is important that proper lip-seal tooling
storage needs to be provided. Placing seal tooling on a metal surface can severely damage
the tool due to metal-to-metal contact.
Seal tooling should be stored on a soft, forgiving surface such as nylon, HDPE, and so on.
Do not store tools in a basket to avoid the damage to the tools critical. Proper storage
facilities must be provided to all workstations to reduce risk of damage to tool.
Regular inspection of the storage surface and/or racks is required and shall accompany the
maintenance schedule for the seal tooling.
Properly label tooling to reduce risk of misuse or misplacement.

Tooling - Maintenance & Damage Reporting

All seal-specific tooling should be placed on a routine maintenance schedule similar to the
torque-tooling schedule.
A formal reporting process shall be established at every dealer to report damaged tooling.
To reduce the risk of downtime and use of an unapproved tool due to tooling damage,
replacement tooling shall be in inventory and available for immediate use. Damaged tools
should be replaced immediately since using a damaged tool increases the risk of seal
damage or leaks.

Preassembly Inspection Of Critical Components


Complete a 1-second inspection for seal and mating components for damage and
contamination. A 1-second inspection is a quick visual inspection of the part and mating
component to determine if damage is present to either part prior to assembly.

Lip Type Seals - Assembly


Seal Lubrication Application
Use an eyedropper or spray bottle for lubrication of the seals. Apply a thin film of lubricant
to the designated seal surfaces. Do not use bristle brushes, foam pads, or cotton swab type
applicators, as these will contaminate surfaces of the seal.
For elastomeric seals the sealing lip and sealing journal should be lubricated using the fluid
to be sealed. Do not over-lubricate. Over-lubrication may cause oil/grease to drip or wash
down after assembly, which may give the appearance of a leaking seal.
Note: PTFE seals are intended for dry installation. Do not lubricate the sealing lip and the
journal. Common applications for these seals are in crankshafts and water pumps. Refer to
appropriate engineering drawing for material specification.

Lubrication Location
For elastomeric seals the sealing lip and sealing journal should be lubricated using the fluid
to be sealed.
For rubber outside diameter seals, also lubricate the outside diameter.
For metal outside diameter seals, do not lubricate the outside diameter.
Note: Do not remove grease from pre-greased seals.

Sealant Use

Some applications may require the use of sealant, commonly referred to as Loctite. Apply
sealant to bore directly, if required.
Refer to "Loctite Maintenance and Solutions Heavy Equipment Guide for Cat Dealers" for
a list of acceptable sealants part numbers and the application for use.
Also refer to "Doing it Right Loctite User Guide" for the best application of adhesives and
sealants.
Referencehttps://dealer.cat.com/cda/files/2722133/7/DoItRightLoctiteGuide.pdf
Do not apply sealant directly to seal.
Do not use sealant with rubber outer diameter seals.
When assembled, the shaft and seal must be lubricated with the lubricant being sealed. In
water/glycol applications, glycerin is an appropriate substitute.
Note: PTFE seals MUST BE INSTALLED DRY for proper wear-in.

Assembly Tooling Use


Do not bottom the installation tool on housings with as-cast surfaces.
Use the correct seal assembly tool as specified on the Assembly Work Order.

Lip Seal Installation Protection

Ver imagen

Illustration 7

g03069056

Sleeve

Elastomeric seals that are installed over a shaft with splines, keyways, or rough surfaces,
require additional precautions to protect the lip. One-use plastic/ rubber nose cones, tape, or
oiled paper should be placed over the splines, keyways, or rough surfaces to provide a
smooth surface over which to slide the seal. No material having sharp edges should be used
for the assembly aid. Inspect the assembly aid after use to ensure that no foreign material
was left behind during assembly.

All PTFE seals require either a wear sleeve or installation sleeve for assembly regardless of
the shaft as shown in Illustration 7. The sleeve (1) prevents the sealing lip (2) from relaxing
and being folded under during assembly.
Seals that can be exposed during painting should be protected from the paint. Preferred
practice is to use plastic adapters, plugs, or tape to mask the seal.
Refer to the print to determine the orientation of the sealing element in the housing bore.
Generally the spring loaded sealing member face the fluid being sealed. In designed to
purge grease applications, the spring must face the air side.

g03069076

Illustration 8
Visual inspection of seals

To ensure that the seal has no visual defects, complete a final visual inspection after
assembly as shown in Illustration 8.
It is not recommended to use test-sealing journal. Do not reuse any sealing journal for
testing purposes.

Illustration 1

g03150156

Background
Commonly used fluid line connectors are:
1. Straight Threaded O-Rings (STOR)
2. O-ring Face Seal (ORFS)
3. Bolt Flanges (SAE Code 61, 62, and CAT Flange)
Radial O-ring seals and conventional face seals are not fluid line connectors.
O-ring sealing depends on proper seating of the seal in the groove, maintaining this
condition during assembly of the joint, and proper torque on the connection. Improper
assembly practices increase the likelihood of leaking joints.
Assembly Aids - Retention compounds and lubricants must not be used on STOR/ORFS.
Applications requiring the use of a retention compound need to be validated for seal
compatibility with the retention compound by Caterpillar before use.

Assembly Tooling
O-rings may be installed into a fitting/adapter without the use of a tool however, installing a
seal without the use of a tool places the seal at extreme risk of damage. It is recommended
that appropriate tooling should be used for the installation of O-rings.

When installing an O-ring over a threaded fitting, it is critical to protect the seal from
damage from threads. To assist the assembly and protect the seal, an installation tool must
be used shown in Illustration 2. The seal protector slides over the threads and allows for an
O-ring to be installed, reducing the risk of a leak due to nicks, cuts, gouges, and twisting of
the seal.

Assembly Storage
Assembled product shall be stored in conformance with the Contamination Control
Guidelines, PEBJ0002, "Caterpillar Dealer Contamination Control Compliance Guide".

O-RINGS INSTALLED IN FACE SEAL JOINTS (NONADAPTOR APPLICATIONS)


Background
O-ring sealing depends on proper seating of the seal in the groove and maintaining this
condition during assembly of the joint. Improper assembly practices increase the likelihood
of creating leaks.

Handling
O-rings should not be stretched or twisted beyond what is necessary for installation. Orings should not be deformed in any manner.

Contact of the O-ring with threads or other sharp objects should be prevented as the contact
risks cutting, nicking, or damaging the seal.

Assembly Aid - Retention Compounds


When O-rings and other elastomeric seals are assembled in face grooves that are vertical or
inverted, a retention compound may be needed to keep the seal in place.
Caterpillar no longer recommends the use of Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline) to install o-rings or
gaskets. The reason is that Petroleum Jelly is NOT compatible with all elastomeric (rubber)
materials that Caterpillar o-rings and gaskets are made from.
The correct product that should be used for assembly of o-rings is P-80 or Petro Gel Amber.
Both of these products are available in the Caterpillar aftermarket and should be used
sparingly.
Refer to the list of part numbers below.

P-80: CAT P/N (NACD): 207-1601

CAT P/N (EAME): 207-1600

Petro Gel Amber: CAT P/N: 369-9450 (6 lb can) or 369-9451 (10 oz tube)

Captive grooves (for example: dovetail grooves, and ORFS fittings) have a built-in
retention mechanism. Retention compounds or lubricants must not be used for captive
grooves.
Retention compound should be stored in a clean, closable container that is kept closed
between uses. Consult the Contamination Control Guidelines, PEBJ0002, "Caterpillar
Dealer Contamination Control Compliance Guide".

Retention Compound Application


Retention compounds are tacky semi-solids that shall be used only on inverted and vertical
O-ring face seal joints.
Application of retention compound directly to the seal does not ensure proper retention in
groove. Proper application procedure must be followed.
Do not install a seal into a groove and then apply retention compound to the top surface of
the seal. The seal will not retain properly in the groove. Retention compounds shall be
applied sparingly (pea-size beads) into the bottom of the O-ring groove. Use the minimum
amount of compound necessary to retain the O-ring during assembly.

Ver imagen

Illustration 29

g03150219

Incorrect application of retention compound to O-rings

The required amount of retention compound will vary depending upon O-ring size. The
work instructions should specify the location and number of retention compound beads to
be applied for retention of O-rings. Illustration provides an example of incorrect application
of retention compound after seal installation.

Ver imagen

Illustration 30

g03150220

Correct application location for retention compound

Retention compounds (1) shall be applied sparingly (pea-size beads) into the bottom of the
O-ring groove as shown in Illustration 30. Use the minimum amount of compound
necessary to retain the O-ring during assembly. The required amount of retention compound
will vary depending upon O-ring size. The work instructions should specify the location
and number of retention compound beads to be applied for retention of O-rings.

Ver imagen

Illustration 31
Overfilling of groove with retention compound

g03150221

Overfilling the groove (Illustration 31) can cause the seal to be displaced, and may result in
the compound getting into areas, such as threads, where the overfilling may have an
adverse effect on torque, and incur high cost of assembly.
Do not apply retention compounds with brushes or fingers, which can introduce
contamination into the system. Use a proper dispensing method as indicated above for
proper application.
Do not apply retention compounds by submerging parts in a bag or box. Follow guidelines
outlined in the Contamination Control Guidelines, PEBJ0002, "Caterpillar Dealer
Contamination Control Compliance Guide".
Apply retention compounds prior to assembly. Do not preassemble components where
retention compounds are used.

Ver imagen

Illustration 32

g03150222

Components preworked and stacked

Do not pre-work components or stack assembled parts as this increases the risk of
contamination and seal damage (Illustration 32).
If the retention compound squishes out of a joint or groove, too much has been applied. Use
a lint-free wipe to remove excess retention compound and clean surface thoroughly.

Assembly
Visually inspect the mating parts to ensure that all surfaces are clean and free from damage
such as nicks or burrs.
When O-rings and other elastomeric seals are assembled in face grooves that are vertical or
inverted, a retention compound may be needed to keep the seal in place.
Install the O-ring immediately before the joint is assembled to reduce chances of the O-ring
falling out.
Place O-ring in the groove and verify that O-ring is fully placed or seated. Avoid spiraling
O-ring during installation.
Install mating face perpendicular to the plane of the groove. Do not slide mating face across
the O-ring.
Torque all mating component fasteners immediately.

O-rings should not be stretched or twisted beyond what is necessary for installation. Orings should not be deformed in any manner.
Contact of the O-ring with threads or other sharp objects should be prevented as the contact
risks cutting, nicking, or damaging the seal.

Assembly Aids - Seal Lubricants


When O-rings and other elastomeric seals are assembled into radial seal joints, a lubricant
is necessary to reduce spiraling, skiving, cutting, and abrasion. Lubricants also reduce the
force required to assemble the joint.
Lubricants shall be stored in properly identified, clean, closable containers that are kept
closed between uses. Consult the Contamination Control Guidelines, PEBJ0002,
"Caterpillar Dealer Contamination Control Compliance Guide".
Do not use petroleum (Vaseline), any adhesive, or unapproved grease as a lubricant.
Lubricants shall not be used on PTFE coated seals or STOR/ORFS seals.

Assembly Aid - Approved Seal Lubricants


PTFE Coating
PTFE coating is a dry lubricant that should be used on all radial seals. The PTFE coating is
added by the manufacturer.
P-80
P-80 may be used as a universal seal lubricant. P-80 is compatible with all sealing
elastomers. P-80 dries quickly so P-80 is unlikely to drip out and create the false
appearance of a fluid leak.
P-80 must NOT be used on STOR/ORFS seals. P-80 or any other lubricant used on a
STOR/ORFS can affect final torque and cause thread stretching.
The use of P-80 on all other PTFE coated seals is acceptable.
Fluid Being Sealed
For oil and fuel joints, the fluid being sealed may be used as a lubricant.
Note: Lubricants must not be used on fluid line connectors (STOR/ORFS) fittings.
Low Pressure AC Line Lubricants
For low-pressure air conditioner lines use the following approved lubricant:
Mineral Seal Oil - McMaster Carr Part No. 3190K281

Lubricant Dispensers

Ver imagen

Illustration 36
Spray bottle

g03150226

The recommended method for applying a lubricant is with a small nozzle spray bottle
(Illustration 36).
Dispose of lubricant containers that have become internally contaminated.

Lubricant Application
Lubricants are low viscosity fluids that shall be used only on radial seal joints.
Seal lubricant shall always be applied to the primary sealing surface. For example, if the
seal is in a groove in the shaft, then the bore is the primary sealing surface. Optionally,
lubricant may also be applied to the seal.
Apply wet lubricants at the time of assembly. Do not apply the lubricant in advance.
The application of lubricants shall not introduce debris onto the seal or sealing surface.
Do not apply seal lubricants with brushes or fingers, which can introduce contamination
into the system. Avoid the use of brushes that shed fibers.
When using lubricant dispensers such as spray bottles, exercise extreme caution and
prevent overspray onto other areas, such as threads, as it may have an adverse effect on
torque. Cover all components that must not be lubricated before lubricating. Follow the
Contamination Control Guidelines, PEBJ0002, "Caterpillar Dealer Contamination Control
Compliance Guide".
Over-spray of lubricants can lead to false leaks. Over-spray of lubricants on threads can
adversely affect torque on the connection leading to a loose and leaky joint.
Before using P-80 lubricant, shake well to ensure proper mixing of lubricant.
Apply lubricants only at the time of assembly. Lubricants, especially P-80, may dry up or
leak out of the joint if applied in advance.
For low-pressure air conditioner lines, lubricate the O-ring with mineral oil.

Tooling Inspection
Inspect tooling before use for contamination and damage that in the form of nicks, gouges,
or missing material.
Improperly maintained cone and pusher tooling can cause seal damage that may be in the
form of cuts, nicks, or tearing of seal. Damage to the seal increases the risk of leaks.
If the cone or pusher is damaged, stop using the tool immediately and report the issue to the
supervisor and processor/planner for immediate replacement.

ASSEMBLY TOOLING:
Routine Maintenance - All seal-specific tooling should be placed on a routine
maintenance schedule similar to the torque-tooling schedule.
Reporting Damage - A formal reporting process shall be established at every dealer to
report damaged tooling.
Replacement Tooling - To reduce the risk of downtime and use of an unapproved tool due
to tooling damage, replacement tooling shall be in inventory and available for immediate
use. Damaged tools should be replaced immediately since using a damaged tool increases
the risk of seal damage or leaks.

g03150227

Cleaning of groove for brake seal

Visually inspect mating parts for contamination or damage (nicks, scratches burrs, and so
on). Use a clean lint-free wipe to remove contamination if present from the groove
(Illustration 37). Follow the Contamination Control Guidelines, PEBJ0002, "Caterpillar
Dealer Contamination Control Compliance Guide".
Install the seal into the groove immediately before the joint is assembled to reduce chances
of the seal being damaged during transit or handling.
Place the seal in the groove. Do not stretch or deform the seal any more than is necessary.
Do not allow the seal to contact threads or other sharp objects. Verify that the seal is fully
seated. Avoid spiraling seal during installation - the seal should be pushed into position
rather than rolled. Use an approved assembly aid when appropriate.
For installation of two-piece seals (example: some brake seals) first install the rubber
energizer and then install the cap piece over the rubber energizer.
Lubricate the seal with the fluid being sealed before installing seal.

Lubricate the seal prior to assembly to reduce risk of contamination, run-off, or dry out of
seal lubricant.
Do NOT install contaminated seals.
Contaminated seals that cannot be removed and reinstalled using the proper assembly
techniques must be cleaned thoroughly using a clean lint-free wipe to reduce risk of
damage to the seal. Contaminated seals that are removed should be scrapped using the nonconforming material process to prevent risk of contamination to the system.
For groove in bore applications lubricate the inside diameter of the seal.
For groove in piston applications lubricate the outside diameter of the seal.
Take care when inserting the shaft into the bore. Make sure that the mating parts are
properly aligned prior to insertion. Assemble at a slow, uniform rate. Do NOT use impact
tools such as hammers when installing assemblies using radial seals.
For larger piston/bore diameters (example: brake seals), use a hydraulic press to ensure
proper seating of the seal and piston to bore alignment. Consider installing shaft (piston)
vertically into the housing to better center the shaft in the housing for some larger
piston/bore diameters (example: brake seals) applications.
