Bal Seal to unveil new low-friction seal at Farnborough

Bal Seal Engineering, Inc., a global provider of custom-engineered sealing, connecting, conducting and shielding solutions for commercial and military aerospace equipment, has announced that it will introduce its new low-friction seal at this week's Farnborough International Airshow.

According to the company, the new seal combines unique wear-resistant geometry with SP83 HT, a specially-formulated polymer-filled PTFE material, to deliver excellent sealing performance and an extremely low dynamic coefficient of friction. The seal's physical and mechanical properties make it ideal for use in rotating turrets, pods and other types of housings, where it can protect sensitive internal components against environmental conditions and contaminants without restricting movement or compromising motor life.

The company says the new seal is designed to deliver effective sealing with minimal friction at low speeds, in moderate temperatures (-40F° to +160°F) and in dry or moist environments. It can seal against a variety of materials, hardnesses and finishes, and can be engineered to meet a broad range of media and pressure requirements. Its Canted-coil™ spring energizer exerts a customizable, near-constant force that compensates for wear and improves service life.

Bal Seal plans to introduce the new low-friction seal at the Farnborough International Airshow event, which runs July 19th-25th, 2010 at the Main Exhibition Complex in Farnborough, Hampshire U.K. The seal will be the central focus of the company's exhibit in Hall 4, Stand A2.
