Spring Energized Teflon Seals

Seal & Design offers a full line of spring energized Teflon seals which are used in rod, piston, face and rotary sealing applications. These seals are typically used in areas where elastomeric seals cannot meet the frictional, temperature, or chemical resistance requirements of the application.

Utilizing a variety of jacket profiles, PTFE compounds, spring types, and lip configurations, these seals can be designed to meet the requirements of the most demanding seal environments.  Contact Seal & Design to review your application needs and discuss how we can help.

Viton & Buna Quad Rings

Quad Rings

Quad Ring Seals are four lipped seals with a specially developed sealing profile. A wide range of elastomer materials for both standard and special applications allows practically all liquid and gaseous media to be sealed.

 

Advantage:

Quad Rings/X-Rings have the following advantages compared to an Oring:

  • Avoids twisting in the groove. Due to its special profile, the seal does not tend to roll in the groove during reciprocating movement.
  • Low friction.
  • Very good sealing efficiency. Due to an improved pressure profile over Quad Ring Seal cross-section, a high sealing effect is achieved.
  • A lubricant reservoir formed between the sealing lips improves start up.
  • Unlike an O-Ring, the mold line flash lies in the trough, between and away from the critical sealing lips.
