can be added. The addition of a metal spring or elastomer energizes the OptiSeal® to provide sealing at low system pressures. • Low emission requirements ® Back-Ups To prevent seal extrusion. and customizable heights. the seal becomes pressure-energized by the fluid media. This sealing combination ensures adequate sealing across the entire pressure range. or back-up ring. and media make it an ideal choice for critical service sealing. low friction seals for multiple industries. With diameters from . By using a variety of profiles and materials. allowing for maximum seal life in high temperature and high pressure applications. Constructed from stronger material. our industry-proven design formulas and standards ensure the best performance possible under the most challenging conditions. pressure. such as: Configurations • High-pressure ranges • Broad temperature requirements • Large extrusion gaps • Static and dynamic applications • Potential misalignment OptiSeal® Standard OptiFace Seal • Rough surface finishes Opti-Oilseal • API 607 FireSafe valves The basic design of the OptiSeal system consists of a U-shaped jacket made from an inert thermoplastic. The design benefits of the OptiSeal® system provide robust assemblies for the most extreme conditions. the lip profile can be customized for specific gland configurations and for service in highly abrasive environments.
