Due to the nature of spring energized seal applications, a wide range of available seal jacket and seal spring materials are offered to customers to provide an engineered product that fits with the entire scope of their various applications. Spring Energized Seals will excel in applications with high speeds and corrosive media, where traditional elastomers fail.
Typically, by the time a company has to resort to the use of a spring energized seal, all other attempts at using more conventional seals have failed. This is exactly why such a wide range of materials for these seals are available; to provide the right combination of materials to completely meet the specifications set by the parameters of an application. Please see the Spring Energized Seal Guide for more information.
