Since you are consulting this book, you are probably in the process of selecting or replacing a seal for a particular application.

This can be a difficult task, since of all the different kinds of machine elements, the seal exhibits the greatest variety. There are many different types and classes of seals, e. The sizes of seals range from millimetre scale for micro-bearings to metre scale for canal locks. The prices range from a few dollars for an O-ring to hundreds of thousands of dollars for nuclear reactor coolant-pump seals. This large variety results from the very wide range of seal applications, e.

If you make a poor choice in selecting your seal, the result can be failure, usually in the form of excessive leakage but sometimes in other forms such as excessive heat generation.

When a machine breaks down, the odds are pretty high that it is the seal that has failed. The cost of failure can be much higher than just the price of the seal, since it would include removal and installation costs, costs associated with downtime and possibly costs associated with liability. Even if a seal does not radically fail, a poorly chosen seal can result in unnecessarily high energy costs, lower efficiency, unfavourable system performance e.

The various demands on a fluid seal are quite stringent, and some are contradictory. The leakage must be low or effectively zero, but a contradictory demand is low friction and low wear rate.

Further, the seal material must be compatible with the sealed fluid, and the design must allow the seal to function properly over the range of required operating conditions, e. To satisfy these demands, seals have evolved into effective machine elements. While they may appear deceptively simple compared to other machine elements, their operation is actually quite complex. Mechanical seals are precision devices, which must be carefully engineered to function properly. Polymeric lip seals, both rotary and reciprocating, rely on micro-scale surface characteristics to operate successfully and therefore require careful and precise material formulation and processing.

While the development of design tools for polymeric lip seals has not progressed as rapidly as those for mechanical seals, our knowledge of the micro-scale processes that govern the operation of these seals has increasingly provided guidance to lip-seal designers.

These developments have led to a large population of effective and robust seals. This book provides a guide for you, the seal user, through this highly varied population. This book has set out to be a revision and update of the fifth edition. That edition was a complete rewrite with new format, which attempted to provide the subject matter grouped into usable sections.

I have been humbled to learn how many readers use it on a regular basis. For this revision it therefore seems sensible to retain the overall format. We have, I hope, corrected all the inevitable errors that crept in to the fifth edition, updated areas where there has been significant progress and included additional experience that I have gained over the intervening 7 years.

Seals are everywhere. It is over 40 years since my introduction to a detailed study of seals, working on a test rig to investigate hydraulic cylinder seals. And yet, the range of seal types and the applications continue to expand. Over the last few years I have assisted with a number of equipment developments where performance of the seals was a critical path item.

Seals are a vital component of virtually every area of our lives. This includes our houses, domestic appliances and vehicles, while transport and virtually all industries are totally dependent on them for safe and reliable operation. They are often treated as a trivial commodity product, but the costs and consequences of a failure can be substantial. One failed fitting in the water system of a house can cause a lot of damage.

In our vehicles they can be costly to replace, and, in a hydraulic braking system, fundamental to our safety. In many industries reliable seals are equally fundamental to reliable operation of the plant and containment of fluids. The costs of seal replacement on process plant can be very high and the implications of sudden failure can be substantial in terms of lost product, cleanup and pollution.

Unreliable seals can be a rapid cause of loss of reputation to a manufacturer. Whether it is a domestic appliance, road vehicle, earth-moving equipment or industrial plant, frequent seal replacement and the inconvenience of clearing up leakage can soon make the customer start looking elsewhere. For this reason nearly all engineers require some appreciation of seal selection and application and this book sets out to provide an unbiased overview of the potential options.

During the last 20—30 years our understanding of seal function and progress with new materials have seen quite relentless progress. Our understanding of how seals operate and the ability to optimize the design have progressed substantially. This has been accompanied by a steady flow of new or improved materials that can be used to improve seal performance. It is interesting to note that since the previous edition there have been quite significant developments in the research on both rotary and reciprocating polymeric seals, and the avid reader will be able to find reference to key areas of this work.

There are individual chapters for rotary, reciprocating and static seals, so that it is relatively easy to explore the potential variants available for an application. It has been another aim when preparing this book to provide a balance of suitable information as a basis for initial seal selection across all the potential seal types available in each application area.

This is intentional as I find that in many cases I deal with, the engineers involved may have a lot of experience of one seal type for an application, but may have never considered, or even been aware of, potential alternatives. Alternatively they may have contact with one supplier who only offers a limited range of products. Hopefully the book will also help the reader to carefully question overenthusiastic sales staff, some of whom appear to have limited comprehension of the challenges involved with a new application.

Almost every sealing application is some sort of challenge. At high temperature, pressure or speed, there is the technical challenge of reducing leakage and friction or increasing life. With apparently simple applications the challenge can be ever-present demands to reduce cost and improve reliability.

Designs that will operate at wider tolerance bands or are easier to assemble may then be required. You will find that design for assembly occurs frequently throughout this book. And then, when it seems that a reliable solution has been found, the seal supplier changes the manufacturing or supply route and quality issues appear.

Working with seals may seem extremely specialist, and indeed it does require specialist knowledge of the design criteria, the materials and the limitations of an individual seal arrangement. But it is also important for the seal specialist to have a very broad understanding of engineering including manufacturing techniques and machinery operation. The preparation of this book has been supported by many of the friends that I have been fortunate to make across the sealing industry and the organizations that have helped are acknowledged separately.

My thanks go to all who have contributed to making this book as up to date and relevant as possible. My special thanks are also due to my wife, Christine, without whose unstinting support it would never have happened. This book would not have been possible without the assistance of many colleagues from across all sectors of the fluid-sealing industry. This chapter provides an introduction to the following chapters. It introduces the wide range of seal designs, many different applications and multi-disciplinary approach that is often required to achieve optimum sealing.

This book sets out to introduce the subject of sealing technology and provide the reader with an understanding of the issues involved and sufficient information, or sources of information, to assist with achieving reliable and effective sealing when designing new equipment or as a solution to a maintenance or performance problem. It is intended for design and development engineers from the many industries that use seals, and the operations and maintenance engineers involved with the plant and machinery once it is in use.

The reader should find information that will help to select an appropriate seal arrangement for a new design, optimize a current design, or if necessary explore alternative sealing methods in the search for a more reliable or cost-effective solution.

Even a relatively simple looking seal, such as the humble O-ring, depends on some quite unique properties of the elastomer material from which it is manufactured to enable it to function reliably.

Failure to understand the properties of the material and adhere to some well-developed design rules can rapidly cause problems. New materials have dramatically extended the potential application areas with respect to temperature range and fluid compatibility.

But, these materials often necessitate specific design rules to accommodate their characteristics. Dynamic seals have to be optimized to provide both minimum leakage and minimum friction and wear, often mutually exclusive tribological objectives.

A better appreciation of the factors involved should permit a more informed dialogue with potential seal suppliers. Practically all seals, either static or dynamic, depend on the properties of the materials from which they are constructed and the interaction of the mating surfaces to achieve a reliable seal with minimum leakage. Again, developments in materials and design of the seals have progressively extended the performance of dynamic seals in most application areas.

User demand and legislation restricting emissions are creating requirements for tighter control of leakage, longer seal life and reduced life-cycle costs. By introducing a wide variety of seal designs and methods together with details of the materials, it is the intention of this book to provide information on methods used in many different industries that may then promote healthy debate on the potential options leading to an informed selection of a cost-effective and appropriate seal arrangement.

The following chapters cover seals for static, rotating and reciprocating applications in turn. Each of these chapters also includes guidance on the selection of an appropriate seal for individual applications. The specific properties of materials used for seals or sealing systems are covered in a separate chapter. The Failure Guide sets out typical symptoms that may be observed with failed seals and the factors to consider, many of which involve attention to the fluid system rather than the seal.

Each industry and technology has some specific terminology, standards and key organizations. Information on these areas, together with an explanation of surface texture terminologies, is included in Chapter 7. Compliance with emission regulations is a fact of life for industrial plant. The European Sealing Association ESA has made a major contribution to this area and the BAT Guidance Note prepared by the association members is provided as an appendix, together with information on the position with respect to European ATEX regulations for operation of mechanical seals in explosive atmospheres.

Static seals are discussed in Chapter 2, and this starts by explaining the use of elastomer O-rings and then extends to alternative materials and seal sections. The relative merits of the many potential elastomer, plastic and metal seals are discussed together with key design criteria. The basics of gasketed joints and the various material options are discussed together with the fundamental differences between gasketed and sealed flanges. A number of the specialized flange sealing techniques are also covered.

Static seals are far more numerous than dynamic seals. They have therefore been the focus of considerable attention with respect to production engineering for volume components. A variety of techniques are presented for consideration that integrate the seal or allow it to be formed or moulded in place.

A hydraulic seal is a relatively soft, non-metallic ring , captured in a groove or fixed in a combination of rings, forming a seal assembly, to block or separate fluid in reciprocating motion applications. Hydraulic seals are vital in machinery. Their use is critical in providing a way for fluid power to be converted to linear motion. Hydraulic seals can be made from a variety of materials such as polyurethane , rubber or PTFE. A static hydraulic seal is located in a groove and sees no movement - only sealing within its confined space, acting like a gasket. To achieve this the gasket should be under pressure.
