Finding the best Sealing Solution for Industrial Applications can be a complex design process incorporating many different operating challenges. The Industrial Seal Market deals with a variety of seal services types and conditions including viscous or abrasive media, high and low temperature ranges, high pressure ranges, and various motion types and velocities.

When considering a sealing solution many hardware manufacturers jump to a traditional O-Ring as their first option. Although useful in less demanding applications, O-Ring elastomers are limited in their uses when temperature, fluid compatibility, and friction are factors. When used within these factors, O-Rings typically wear out sooner and require frequent replacement.

When these harsh operating factors cause seal failure many of our Industrial Sector Clients turn to more robust options in our Spring Energized Seals. Spring energized seals provide a wider selection of materials and compounds to choose from and offer nominal surface contact between the seal and hardware gland.

Spring Energized Seals are custom designed to the sealing groove and machined/milled to fit at precise tolerances. With exacting precision, many of our Seal designs can provide near-zero or zero leakage.
