AccuSeal is a manufacturer of PTFE based, spring energized seals and sealing
systems. Some advantages of our PTFE compounds over standard elastomers include: lower
friction for dynamic applications, greater media compatibility and a greater temperature
The purpose of this guide is to help select sealing solutions for specific applications. It
will cover standard seal geometries for spring-energized seals
and rotary lip seals.
Seals with spring energizers can be designed for static, reciprocating and slow to
medium rotary service. Lip seal designs are reserved for high-speed rotary applications with
low pressures where friction is a concern. No matter the system specifications, AccuSeal can
provide the solution.
