Compression seals are typically designed with a higher initial pre-load than other designs which helps to improve sealing at lower pressures. These profiles are typically designed for use in single cavity groove hydraulic or pneumatic applications as a rod, piston, or static seals. They are able to seal pressure in both directions.
Let Chesterton's sealing experts help you choose the right material and profile combination to maximize equipment performance. There are numerous compression type seal profiles used in industry from including cap seals, piston cups and various static seals and stacked v-rings, depending upon the application requirements and operating conditions. Using the proper seal design with a high performance material has proven to create a very effective sealing solution.
