Slide 3
Aviation, Space & Defense Equipment
• Typical operating
conditions
 Broad service temperatures
 -459°F to 600°F
 Exposure to acids, bases,
fuels, oils, & other
aggressive media
 Repetitive movements,
requiring accurate,
consistent positioning
 Long service intervals for
optimal productivity
 Subject to strict
performance standards
Slide 4
Seals: Critical Components
• Protect against leakage,
prevent ingress of
contamination
 Rotary/oscillating, reciprocating,
static applications
• Seal failure adversely impacts
precision, consistency,
accuracy, can cause breakdown
• Seal designs must:
 Balance friction and sealing
effectiveness to guard against
leakage while enabling smooth
operation
 Resist wear in aggressive media
 Retain sealing properties in harsh
temps
Slide 5
Sealing Application Examples
Actuators Fuel Metering Valves Gimbals & Pods Hydraulic Systems
Slide 6
Seal Properties: Impact on Design
• Friction
 Impacts power consumption
 Drives component selection
 Actuators, motors
• Sealing effectiveness
 Inhibits contamination and corrosion
 Ensures consistent performance over
time
• Durability
 No lubrication required
 Suitable for use in wet and dry
environments
• Ease of installation
 Streamlined field maintenance,
replacement
Slide 7
Polymer Seals
• What are they?
 Machined lip seals, made from
blended PTFE, UHMWPE, PEEK,
or other premium materials
 Most effective when combined
with a metal spring energizer
 As a machined part, can be
easily fit into desired diameter
and/or cross section
 May be enhanced with other
components (locking rings,
backup elements)
Slide 8
Why Polymer Seals?
• Material selection = design
flexibility
 Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)
 Unfilled, virgin, modified
 Filled - graphite, carbon, glass,
polymers
 Low friction, high temperature, chemically resistant
 Ultra-high molecular weight
polyethylene (UHMWPE)
 High wear resistance (under
180 °F), best for aqueous
media
 Polyetheretherketone (PEEK)
 High temperature (to 600°F)
Slide 9
PTFE: An Ideal Seal Material
• Low coefficient of friction, low
“stick-slip”
 Controllable with geometries, energizers
• Wide temperature range
 -459 °F to 600 °F (-273 °C to 316 °C)
• Wide pressure range
 Hard vacuum to 20 kpsi
• Unlimited shelf life
 Performance doesn’t degrade in storage
• Excellent chemical resistance
• Superior wear resistance
 Improved with fillers
• Can seal in dry media
Slide 10
Seal Design Considerations
• Method of manufacture
 Machined = tighter tolerances than molded
• Geometry
 Shorter dynamic lip reduces friction
 Longer dynamic lip increases contact area
 Locking ring design retains seals through
temperature cycling and pressure
environments
• Jacket material
 Polymer-filled PTFE material
 Low friction and stiction
 Minimal wear
 Temperature range
• Seal energizer (canted coil, v-spring, helical
ribbon, elastomeric)
 Corrosion (galvanic) resistance
 Customizable loads
 Chemically compatible
 Consistent spring force with canted coil
Metal
locking
ring
PTFE
seal
jacket
Slide 11
Canted Coil Spring Energizer
• Unique force vs. deflection curves
• Working deflection to 35%
• Near constant spring force
 Compensates for changes to the initial
deflection caused by wear,
temperature change, tolerance
variation
• Each coil deflects independently
under load
Canted coil spring energizer
Slide 12
Other Factors Affecting Seal Friction
• Hardware
 Material hardness 30 Rc
min
 Smooth surface finish
 Greater sealing contact
between seal and mating
surface
 Improved sealing ability
 Reduced friction
• Seal diameter
• Lubrication
• Media type
• Pressure and speed
• Thermal cycling
Slide 13
Case Study: Gimbal Seal
Requirements Solutions
• Low friction and
“stick slip”
• Resistant to various
environments and
chemicals
• Bal Seal® spring-energized seal made from
PTFE material
• Low coefficient of friction and low stick-
slip
• Large temperature range
• Polymer-filled PTFE material
• Increased wear resistance
• Friction not compromised
• Large gland height
tolerances

Slide 14
Summary & Recommendations
• Optimize your aviation, space, &
defense equipment design by choosing
seals that balance friction & sealing
effectiveness
 Consider PTFE, UHMWPE or combination of
premium polymers, fillers
 Customize seal jacket geometry to meet
specific application requirements
 Energize seal with a spring that offers
controllable force
• In early design stages, collaborate
with Bal Seal Engineering to:
 Get consultative engineering advice
 Review hardware design
 Estimate frictional outcome
 Perform Finite Element Analysis
 Produce high-quality seal prototypes
 Scale up to full production

Sealing for Improved Aviation, Space & Defense Equipment Performance

  • 1.
  • 2. Slide 2 Aviation, Space & Defense Equipment • Aircraft & airborne systems  Hydraulic pumps/cylinders/actuators  Pneumatic systems  Gimbals, pods, & pan-tilt systems  Engines & fuel metering valves  UAV motors & propeller shafts • Ships & seaborne systems  Radar tracking  Torpedo systems  Deep sea UUV propulsion systems • Land/ground defense systems  Radar/satellite  Missile/rocket propulsion  Hydraulic pumps/cylinders/actuators • Space  Rover mobility controls  Rocket engines
  • 3. Slide 3 Aviation, Space & Defense Equipment • Typical operating conditions  Broad service temperatures  -459°F to 600°F  Exposure to acids, bases, fuels, oils, & other aggressive media  Repetitive movements, requiring accurate, consistent positioning  Long service intervals for optimal productivity  Subject to strict performance standards
  • 4. Slide 4 Seals: Critical Components • Protect against leakage, prevent ingress of contamination  Rotary/oscillating, reciprocating, static applications • Seal failure adversely impacts precision, consistency, accuracy, can cause breakdown • Seal designs must:  Balance friction and sealing effectiveness to guard against leakage while enabling smooth operation  Resist wear in aggressive media  Retain sealing properties in harsh temps
  • 5. Slide 5 Sealing Application Examples Actuators Fuel Metering Valves Gimbals & Pods Hydraulic Systems
  • 6. Slide 6 Seal Properties: Impact on Design • Friction  Impacts power consumption  Drives component selection  Actuators, motors • Sealing effectiveness  Inhibits contamination and corrosion  Ensures consistent performance over time • Durability  No lubrication required  Suitable for use in wet and dry environments • Ease of installation  Streamlined field maintenance, replacement
  • 7. Slide 7 Polymer Seals • What are they?  Machined lip seals, made from blended PTFE, UHMWPE, PEEK, or other premium materials  Most effective when combined with a metal spring energizer  As a machined part, can be easily fit into desired diameter and/or cross section  May be enhanced with other components (locking rings, backup elements)
  • 8. Slide 8 Why Polymer Seals? • Material selection = design flexibility  Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)  Unfilled, virgin, modified  Filled - graphite, carbon, glass, polymers  Low friction, high temperature, chemically resistant  Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE)  High wear resistance (under 180 °F), best for aqueous media  Polyetheretherketone (PEEK)  High temperature (to 600°F)
  • 9. Slide 9 PTFE: An Ideal Seal Material • Low coefficient of friction, low “stick-slip”  Controllable with geometries, energizers • Wide temperature range  -459 °F to 600 °F (-273 °C to 316 °C) • Wide pressure range  Hard vacuum to 20 kpsi • Unlimited shelf life  Performance doesn’t degrade in storage • Excellent chemical resistance • Superior wear resistance  Improved with fillers • Can seal in dry media
  • 10. Slide 10 Seal Design Considerations • Method of manufacture  Machined = tighter tolerances than molded • Geometry  Shorter dynamic lip reduces friction  Longer dynamic lip increases contact area  Locking ring design retains seals through temperature cycling and pressure environments • Jacket material  Polymer-filled PTFE material  Low friction and stiction  Minimal wear  Temperature range • Seal energizer (canted coil, v-spring, helical ribbon, elastomeric)  Corrosion (galvanic) resistance  Customizable loads  Chemically compatible  Consistent spring force with canted coil Metal locking ring PTFE seal jacket
  • 11. Slide 11 Canted Coil Spring Energizer • Unique force vs. deflection curves • Working deflection to 35% • Near constant spring force  Compensates for changes to the initial deflection caused by wear, temperature change, tolerance variation • Each coil deflects independently under load Canted coil spring energizer
  • 12. Slide 12 Other Factors Affecting Seal Friction • Hardware  Material hardness 30 Rc min  Smooth surface finish  Greater sealing contact between seal and mating surface  Improved sealing ability  Reduced friction • Seal diameter • Lubrication • Media type • Pressure and speed • Thermal cycling
  • 13. Slide 13 Case Study: Gimbal Seal Requirements Solutions • Low friction and “stick slip” • Resistant to various environments and chemicals • Bal Seal® spring-energized seal made from PTFE material • Low coefficient of friction and low stick- slip • Large temperature range • Polymer-filled PTFE material • Increased wear resistance • Friction not compromised • Large gland height tolerances • 1 bar of pressure differential or less • Bi-directional pressure • Flexible seal lips • Custom-engineered seal lips • Bal Spring® canted coil spring energizer • Precisely control forces (within 10% of nominal) • Accommodates large tolerance stack-up • Wide temperature variations • Large diameter relative to cross section • Bal Seal® face seal profile Spring-energized seal lcross section with customized, low friction geometry
  • 14. Slide 14 Summary & Recommendations • Optimize your aviation, space, & defense equipment design by choosing seals that balance friction & sealing effectiveness  Consider PTFE, UHMWPE or combination of premium polymers, fillers  Customize seal jacket geometry to meet specific application requirements  Energize seal with a spring that offers controllable force • In early design stages, collaborate with Bal Seal Engineering to:  Get consultative engineering advice  Review hardware design  Estimate frictional outcome  Perform Finite Element Analysis  Produce high-quality seal prototypes  Scale up to full production
