Seals are a vital part of the medical industry, and you will typically see high performance polymers seals used because of the critical need for reliability.
The medical device industry faces continually evolving challenges when it comes to finding the right
sealing solutions for new and improved designs. Issues such as sterilization, wide ranges of expected
pressure, potentially aggressive environments, and FDA and USP approval make the design and
specification process quite challenging. In this article, we are going to look at custom spring energized PTFE seals as a potential solution for sealing challenges in the medical industry.
