Introducing the widest selection of high


performance spring-energized seals
available today...
Advanced EMC Technologies specializes in
the design and manufacture of springenergized seals made from a wide range of
high-performance polymers.
Advanced EMC Technologies seals offer
very low friction, wide temperature range,
full chemical compatibility, and
long service life.
Advanced EMC Technologies seals routinely
handle applications where conventional seals
fail.

Spring Materials. Advanced EMC


Technologies seals is are energized by one of
three different spring style made from 300series stainless steel. For unusually corrosive
service we make the spring from Hastelloy.

Designs. There are three styles of seals,


based on which of three different types of
spring is used in the seal. This design has a
cantilever beam spring, and is used for
general purpose applications. The maximum
pressure rating for rod and piston seal designs
ranges from 3,000 to 30,000 psi. Cryogenic
designs are rated to -320 F .

Design Concept. PTFE and other polymer


blends make excellent sealing materials,
especially when their resilience is enhanced by
incorporating a spring energizer into a Ushaped groove in the seal itself. The spring
provides permanent elasticity and immunity
from compression set. The shape of the seal
makes it pressure-actuated, becoming tighter
as media pressure rises. By combining our
high performance Fluorolon PTFE blends
with corrosion resistant metal springs,
Advanced EMC Technologies seals eliminate
the disadvantages associated with
conventional elastomeric seals - degradation,
heat aging, embrittlement, chemical attack,
swelling, compression set, and high friction.
Seal materials. Advanced EMC Technologies
seals are made from PTFE blends and other
high performance polymers .

Hardware
recommendations
Surface finish. Improving the finish on static and
dynamic mating surfaces is a primary method for
obtaining longer seal life, lower friction, and greater
sealing integrity, in general we recommend finishes
as shown below:

Mating Surface Hardness. Harder surfaces extend seal


and hardware life by preventing abrasion to the metal
and holding a smooth finish.
In moderate speed and pressure conditions, the
minimum recommended hardness is 44 RC. Higher
speed/pressure or poor lubrication may require values
from 65 to 72 RC, using special coatings Hardenable
materials include:

Shaft Coatings. In high-spees rotary or severe-service


reciprocating, use chromium oxide or similar coatings
with high hardness and smooth finish. Avoid chrome
plating or use in light duty service only. Consult factory
for further data on coatings and recommended
substrates for your specific application.

Our slant spring design is similar to AV1A but provides closer control of friction or torque, greater tolerances and eccentricities. Also for small diameters
seals and cross sections.

STATIC SERVICE

3000

-200 to 450

Designed for greater extrusion resistance in applications with high pressure up to 10,000 psi and high
temperature. Applications include pressure accumulators, cylinders and valve components. Also available in Slant Spring designs.
For very high pressure cylinders or vessels requiring the use of an anti extrusion ring to support the
seal. Back up rings are available in high performance
polymers (PEEK).

Designed for slow rotary, static or oscillating service


which requires sealing beetween two mating surfaces; chemical tanks, vessels, swivel joints. Available in
V or slant spring designs.

Shaft seal for use in pumps, motors and rotary equipment where a metal cased shaft seal cannot be used.
The seals outer O-ring reduces or eliminates rotation
of the seal on the shaft.

General purpose rotary applications where the seal


outer diameter is clamped axially in the seal housing
preventing rotation on the seal on the shaft.

Same as SL design but with secondary lip for use as


excluder for dust, water or particulates which could

For use in higher pressure rotary service requiring


additional sealing lip support. Applications include
compressors, pumps, hydrostatic clutches and
transmissions.

Each spring has unique load and deflection properties affect seal performance. Spring load affects
friction, wear rate, and ability to seal fluids tightly.
Deflection range affects seals ability to handle
gland tolerances and take up seal wear.

M Cantilever Beam Spring

purpose spring that is well suited for positive wiping action at the front edge of seal lip.
Available in standard and heavy load.
