Why use a PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) instead of Rubber in a Rotary Shaft Seal?

Posted On March 25, 2016


PTFE Rotary Shaft Seals Outperform Rubber Shaft Seals

Elastomeric seals performed well for many years, but as the applications and environments became more demanding, elastomers had a hard time keeping up.  If the application pressure is above 30 psi or the operating temperature goes above 275°F, elastomers simply don’t perform as well as, say, PTFE. (polytetrafluoroethylene).  In this article, we are going to look at 3 areas where PTFE rotary shaft seals outperform rubber shaft seals.

Tribological Properties for PEEK: Bushing and Bearing Applications

Posted On February 18, 2016

PEEK Increasingly Popular

Polymer bushings have found widespread acceptance because they are typically low friction, light weight, relatively inexpensive, have an extended service life, and can be self-lubricating.  Most polymer bearings and bushings are made from a form of PEEK, PTFE, Nylon, or UHMW PE PEEK is becoming increasingly popular because it offers a good balance of chemical, heat, and wear resistance; and is, versatile when it comes to manufacturing.

PTFE & UHMW PE Seals: 3 Benefits for Food & Dairy Industry

Posted On January 08, 2016


Extremely Efficient Sealing System

Spring-energized seals are an effective sealing solution for both dynamic and static applications.  The sealing element itself achieves a seal at low pressures, and when pressures increases the seal is made tighter as the spring engages. The spring also compensates both for eccentricity and wear on the seal jacket, and increases the natural resilience of the seal jacket.   This results in an extremely efficient sealing system.

When PTFE and UHMW materials are used for the seal jacket, you have a spring-energized seal that performs with distinction under high pressures, in extreme temperatures, has ultra low friction, and is quite chemically inert.  So what does the mean for the food and dairy industry?
