The Rotary FlexiSeal should be used when speeds are relatively low (<1000 sfpm) and pressures are high (up to 10,000 psi). FlexiLip™ and FlexiCase™ profiles should be used when pressures are low and speeds high. Rotary FlexiSeals feature either a flanged design or an O-ring on the OD to keep the seal fixed in t he bore as the shaft rotates. The O-ring can either be centered along the OD or be located in the heel of the seal. Virtually any O-ring material can be supplied with a custom rotary FlexiSeal, but a fluorocarbon material is standard.
Radial applications with extreme conditions that involve lower speeds and higher pressures, for which the Rotary FlexiSeal is best suited, include:
Compressors, Cryogenics, FDA Clean Grade, Jet Engines, Hydraulic Cylinders, Paint Sprayers, Pressure Washers, Robotics, Steering Cylinders, Valves, Vapor recovery systems, and many more.
