Selection of Metallic Spring Energized Seals for Aerospace

2015-11-19
WIP
AIR6079A
The purpose of this report is to provide design, application and maintenance engineers with basic information on the use of metallic Spring Energized sealing devices when used as piston (OD) and rod (ID) seals in aircraft fluid power components such as actuators, valves, and swivel glands. The Spring Energized seal is defined and the basic types in current use are described. Guidelines for selecting the type of Spring Energized seal for a given design requirement are covered in terms of friction, leakage, service life, installation characteristics, and interchangeability. Spring Energized seals can also be made in various forms and types, including face seals (internal and external pressure sealing types), and rotary variants too. These further types will not be discussed in this document, but many of the same principles apply for them as well.

Elastomer Compatibility Considerations Relative to Elastomeric Sealant Selection

2014-11-06
AIR786B
This document contains data relative to the chemical nature of aerospace fluids and relates each to its empirical effect upon elastomeric components. Since the compatibilities of elastomers are determined by the compounding as well as the nature of the base polymer, the elastomers considered are limited to finished compounds for which material or performance specifications can be referenced.

METALLIC SEAL RINGS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE RECIPROCATING HYDRAULIC SERVICE

1969-11-01
AIR1077
An attempt has been made to consider all features of seal ring design including configuration, materials, hardness, dimensions, surface finishes, surface treatment, leak testing, and general quality. In addition to this, allowable cylinder breathing and general quality requirements of mating hardware are discussed. Also, at the end of this report, there is a brief paragraph on other types of seal rings.
