WHY USE SPRING-ENERGIZED SEALS?

From lip profile customization, to unique contours and seal geometries, we partner with you to design the optimal sealing solution. Our spring-energized OptiSeal® components, OptiPak configurations, and A6R composite seals are designed for a range of service conditions, from dynamic conditions, to differential pressures and temperature ranges.

Some additional benefits of using our spring-energized sealing options include:

  • Completely customizable components
  • Seals, sealing elements, and configurations for broad pressure ranges
  • Effective in sealing large extrusion gaps
  • High-performance materials
  • Available for rod and piston sealing
  • Less friction in dynamic applications
  • Materials lend seal to lower permanent set
  • Lowered friction in dynamic application

JACKET MATERIAL SELECTION FOR SPRING-ENERGIZED SEAL DESIGN

Material selection and compatibility are primary factors that contribute to excellent sealability. When designing a spring energized seal for your application, our engineering staff chooses materials with physical attributes, performance properties, and performance characteristics specific to your application.

EVALUATING THE ENVIRONMENT

CDI design experts carefully assess all aspects of the application environment. The range of materials used in our spring energized seals allow for efficient use in applications with variations in temperature, pressure, and media. The result is a sealing solution capable of performing in dynamic, hostile environments where traditional elastomeric seals fail.

ENERGIZER MATERIAL SELECTION

Characteristics such as load value, corrosion resistance, and deflection range are primary factors our engineers assess when selecting a spring for a given application. While spring energizers are among the most popular materials used in the energized seals we offer, elastomeric options such as custom o-rings are available upon request.
