If square rings perform poorly in dynamic sealing envirionments why do many brake calipers use them?
Are you considering operating pressures greater than 1500 psi when you made this generalization? Also under the same conditions (same groove design) which seal - o-ring or square seal - will provide for the gratest piston retraction? That is under similar conditions which design lends itself to pulling the caliper piston back into the caliper body when the pedal is released?
Thank you for your question. I was referring to lathe cut seals as being a poor choice for a dynamic seal because they lack the formed edges and surface smoothness required for dynamic applications. The pistons in brake calipers do move and as such can be considered dynamic, but they are not typical of dynamic sealing applications. Most applications have more piston travel; such as the hydraulic cylinders on a garbage truck that has a very high duty cycle, compared to the minimal amount of piston movement in a caliper, usually less than an inch over the entire life of the brake pads.

Do you think Hubpages should take a harder stance to poorly written hubs?I hop hubs when I can, and find so many that are of poor quality. They have little to no content, or just one long text block. Don't get me started about the spelling or grammar.Should HP take more of a harder...

Do you ever go back and look at an old, poorly performing hub and think, what was I on?!I just had a look at one of my worst hubs, it was also one of my first I might add The keywords were kinda irrelevant and the layout was very off-putting! An amazon ad was dominating the whole thing cause I had...

What do you do when you see a poorly written or misspelled title on a hub?Some times people make mistakes on the titles of their hubs. This means less people will probably read them. Do you tell the author or ignore the hub?

Do you think hubbers should be more involved with removing poorly written hubs?I previously asked a question if Hubpages should do more about poorly written hubs. Most hubbers stated HP should. Should hubbers themselves be more involved with that? We may flag bad hubs, but we...

Holy cow! I've been hub hopping and looking through a few freshly written hubs today and I am blown away by the low quality!The thought hadn't even crossed my mind before now to add "flagging" to my list of things to do while hanging out at HP as part of my daily ritual. I'm...
