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.
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.
