Sealing Techniques for Missile Applications

The purpose of this standard is to provide the missile hydraulic and pneumatic component designer with information learned, tested and substantiated in correction of problems and failures experienced with seals that are subject to the unique requirements of missile static storage and subsequent dynamic operational conditions. Missile hydraulic and pneumatic component designers have been handicapped by the absence of concise design criteria for two difficult sealing conditions usually existing in missile applications as follows: Static pressure condition - Low pressure for long periods in a cyclic temperature environment (i.e., long term storage requirements). Dynamic pressure condition - High pressures suddenly applied in an extreme temperature environment (i.e., operational firing requirement).
