Spring Energized Seals | Energized rod seals

 
Energized rod seals

Spring Energized Seals,custom and standard dimensions available. Jacket in PTFE compound, PEEK, UHMW-PE, PU 54Sh.D. Jackets and electro-welded springs are designed and realized within the company, so that HD has the complete control of the production process. Spring are available in Aisi302, Elgiloy, Hastelloy and NACE approved Inconel X750.
For the "V" shaped cross sections an optional EU-FDA approved Silicone filling is available.

Spring energized seals are suitable for assembling in closed groove starting from a minimum rod diameter
according with dimensional class and spring's shape.
Assembling requires skill and can be more or less difficult according with the position of the groove.

FOR THESE REASONS THE OPEN GROOVE ASSEMBLING IS ALWAYS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED

Spring Energized Seals OMEGA profile:  ASSEMBLING IN CLOSED GROOVE
 
The assembling ram can be manufactured out of PA6 or POM
- Deform diametrically the seal and insert it in the hole
- Push the seal against the stop and let it partially snap in to the groove
- Gently pushing the ram, complete the insertion in to the groove
- Resize the seal inserting and rotating the calibrating tool

 

Spring Energized Seals can also be installed in SEMI-OPEN GROOVE
