|The OmniSeal 103A is a refinement of the original spring energised seal design. The helical wound flat spring offers a moderate to high spring load for static and slow to moderate speed dynamic sealing. It has higher friction than the 400A Series, but better sealing of light liquids and gases. Available in all aerospace, military and industrial gland sizes.|
The OmniSeal 400A utilizes a cantilevered finger spring design. This unique spring design provides more dynamic runout and wider gland tolerances. Seal friction is reduced substantially, yet remains consistent with positive sealing in both low and high pressures. Available to fit all aerospace, military and industrial gland sizes. Larger cross sections up to 3/4" are also available.
OmniSeal APS (Advanced Pitch Spring) utilizes a unique coiled wire spring design that has a light load and characteristics of a wide range of deflection while producing an almost constant spring load. This feature permits a large wear allowance in the seal jacket while maintaining an effective sealing load. Also, the spring can be wound in extremely small coil diameters, which makes this type of seal ideal for small cross section and small diameter seal applications. The low stressed spring makes it possible to deform the seal, allowing for assembly of rod seals into most closed glands without damaging the spring.
The OmniSeal RP II utilizes a wrapped and formed ribbon spring. The design offers the utmost in spring deflection for otherwise difficult sealing applications, and may be used for reciprocating and slow rotary motion in dynamic as well as static sealing.
The Omniseal RP II seal is one of the most rugged of all Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics seals, and will often work under the most severe mechanical conditions when other designs fail. Available in most aerospace, military and industrial gland sizes, as well as larger cross sections.
|The OmniSeal RACO 1100A Face Seal employs a heavy duty, high load RACO spring with continuous spring contact along the entire sealing lip. This rugged seal is recommended for extreme static sealing conditions such as those involving cryogenic fluids, ultra high vacuum and positive sealing of helium. The RACO® seal is also used dynamically in marine loading arm swivels and similar applications where high torque and clamping forces are employed. Larger cross sections and diameters are quite common with this seal design.|
