Simrit displays aerospace engine sealing portfolio at 49th International Paris Air Show

To showcase its extensive engineering and advanced technology expertise, Simrit will demonstrate its portfolio of aerospace engine sealing solutions during the 49th International Paris Air Show held in Le Bourget, France from June 20 to 26. The product line – consisting of brush, segmented, compact mechanical and ACTISEAL® seals – was specially developed to meet the precise needs of several aerospace applications, including engines, rockets, and space vehicles and equipment.

The demanding operating conditions encountered in today's gas turbine engines, along with increasing environmental concerns, have created the need for an alternative to conventional labyrinth seals. As a result, brush seals were developed to accommodate the radial movements of the dynamic rotor shaft due to the flexibility of their bristles. Additionally, the free length and angle of the bristles, as well as the wire diameter, can be customized to the given application to optimize seal stiffness, resulting in low wear and leakage, and a potential reduction in fuel consumption.

Designed for gas sealing applications primarily in jet aircraft engines and gas turbines, Simrit's circumferential segmented seals are ideal for high-performance equipment where large axial shaft movements, space requirements, weight reduction and / or efficiency are major concerns. Containing a set of segmented carbon rings that contact the shaft (or runner) to form a circumferential dynamic seal, they also serve a wide range of applications in rotating machinery, such as compressors and blowers.

Mechanical face seals are designed for a variety of applications, including aircraft engine accessory gearboxes and main shafts, hydraulic pumps, starters, compressors, industrial generators and other high-speed rotating machinery. Uniquely, Simrit offers custom-engineered seal configurations, as well as previously developed and proven materials and designs to meet customers' varying needs.

Simrit's static metal ACTISEAL seals are used between surfaces that have little or no movement to prevent the passage, flow or leakage of a gas or fluid. Offering a substantial track record of success in solving leakage problems, the ACTISEAL line consists of three solutions, ACTISEAL–C, ACTISEAL–E and ACTISEAL–W, to match varying customer needs.
