An inflatable seal is a type of rubber seal which inflates (rather than compresses) to create an air or watertight barrier. When compared to elastomeric compression seals, Inflatable rubber seals are more forgiving of irregular or misaligned surfaces, which boosts sealing integrity.
They are also easier to use because they require less force to ensure a good seal-just move the mating parts into place and inflate the seal to close the gap. This makes them the perfect solution for unique and/or difficult sealing applications.
Inflatable seals are well suited for use with:
- Horizontal or Vertical sliding doors.
- Processing equipment where rapid sealing and unsealing is required.
- Hinged doors with flush thresholds for easy personnel or equipment access.
- Large fabricated doors or other closures where it is impractical to machine the sealing surfaces to accommodate conventional compression seals and gaskets.
Features and Benefits:
- Expand and retract with the movement of fluids (pneumatic or hydraulic).
- Large Material Selection: SBR, EPDM, FKM, HNBR, which offer highly resistant mechanical and physical properties to ensure a long lifetime and numerous operating cycles.
- Temperaturens from -50 deg. C to +360 deg. C (-148 Fahrenheit to 482 Fahrenheit).
- It can be used for moving, handling, holding, or clamping, Particularly large, fragile or complex objects.
