Spring-Loaded PTFE Piston Seal
Designed for very low friction, extreme temperature service (cryogenic to high temperature), or chemically aggressive environments. Spring provides constant load to the beveled seal lip for best sealing performance under harsh conditions. A variety of different seal lip and spring configurations are available to meet specific sealing requirements. Go to Spring-Energized PTFE Seals for detailed information.

|Permachem xxxx||5,000psi (350bar) vacuum||10,000psi (700bar)||-328°F to 500°F (-200°C to 260°C)||33ft/s (10m/s)||Various material compound and spring combinations are available for aggressive chemicals, NACE service, chlorine service, cryogenic service, vacuum service, FDA (both contact and non-contact), fugitive emissions, as well as control fluids, hydraulic fluids, dry running in a wide range of gases|
|Material Permachem xxxx will be selected by AHPSeals to match your operating conditions.|
|*Important Note: Maximum values above depend on extrusion gap, clearances, seal material, media, temperatures, pressures, surface speed, dynamic running surface finish and working environment. Seals cannot be operated at their upper ratings at the same time. For pressure above 3.000psi (210bar)or temperature above 200°F (95°C), please contact engineering for seal material and hardware specification.|
