Spring Energized Seals
MFP Seals produces a full range of spring energized seals that are used in a wide range of applications. Spring energized seals can be produced for applications that present challenges to other conventional seal designs and no matter what the media a seal can be designed to fit the application. Common seal applications that call for spring loaded seals range from explosive decompression resistant seals or AED Seals, extreme temperature applications, high surface speeds, non-lubricated systems, Extreme pressure, Vacuum applications and more. A variety of spring designs can be used and the spring configuration is selected based on your application. Spring configurations such as helical spring energized seals, Slanted coil spring energized seals, U-Spring energized seals & V Spring energized seals are readily available or can be produced custom to your application. MFP Seals can produce springs made from 301 Stainless Steel, 302 Stainless Steel, 304 Stainless Steel, 316 Stainless Steel, Alloy C-276 Beryllium Copper, Elgiloy and other Alloys.
|Helical Spring Energized SealsMFP Seals Helical spring loaded seals are made from a flat ribbon and wound into a round cross section helix geometry. The Helical spring is designed for use in U-Cup style seals, as well as other configurations, for radial or axial compression energized seals and produces a very high unit load over a small deflection range. The Helical spring loaded seal is usually used in static or slow dynamic applications and often for extremely low temperatures.|
|Slanted Coil Spring Energized SealsMFP Seals Slanted Coil Spring Loaded Seals produce a very flat load curve when compressed. The Slanted Coil spring is designed for use in U-Cup seals, as well as other configurations, when a constant predictable load over a wide deflection range is desired. These slanted coil spring seals are available in light, medium and high load designs as well as being offered with gold, silver and nickel plating for use in Electronic and Semiconductor applications.|

|V Spring Energized SealsMFP Seals V-Spring loaded seals are a cantilever beam design that is applied as a radial or axial compression energizer for a U-Cup style seal. The V Spring provides a moderate load over a wide deflection range and is used in dynamic and static seal applications.|
