Sealing Solutions for Mining Equipment

In the mining industry, mining equipment is used in varied application conditions. As the equipment operates on hydraulic cylinders, industrial seals need to be chosen to support contamination prevention and equipment performance. For over 25 years, SSP Seals has supported the mining industry by manufacturing hydraulic, pneumatic and shaft seals for drilling equipment.

How SSP Seals can Help You ?

SSP provides a complete service for the design, development and manufacture of mining seals. Design engineers and material technologists carefully consider application conditions such as exposure to mud, dust, water, and gases when designing new and innovative sealing systems. Careful attention is paid to seal profile design and material selection to ensure qualities of strength, contamination resistance, and performance in tight spaces in the finished component. Our mining seals inventory includes:

  • Nitrile Rubbers: The most common nitrile copolymer blend is the compound known as Buna-N. It possesses good resistance to petroleum based hydraulic oils.
  • Vinyl Menthyl Silicon Rubber: Silicon is an elastomer made from silicon, oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon. This material is mainly used in static seals for application equipment exposed to a wide range of temperatures.
  • HPU Thermoplastic Polyurethane Formulated of copolymers of ether or ester based urethanes, this material is used in a wide application of seals, wipers, back-up rings, cushions, and bumpers.

We also have the capability to refurbish seals that will meet the needs of existing equipment. Custom seals can also be designed for specialized applications. SSP also provides a complete service for the design, development and manufacture of seals for OEM and existing equipment refurbishment applications.

SSP Seals can create mining seals to support the performance of a variety of application equipment, including:

  • Longwall Roof Supports
  • Cutting Machines
  • Roof Bolting Machines
  • Escalators
  • Scoop Trams
  • Shearers
  • Shuttle Cars
  • Drilling Machines

SSP Seals provides industrial seals that are designed for high performance, extended equipment life and enhanced productivity. If you need more information, or have a query, give us a call us on 1-908-852-3125. You can also email us at
