Improving Installation - Axial

Axial seals, also called face seals, are a very robust and common design for an O-ring or other type of seal.

As with any seal, problems can arise during installation well after the design stage. Particularly if the groove is mounted vertically, is not round, or the hardware face has a number of ports requiring a seal.

Large seals can be prone to rolling, twisting, and not properly seating. This leads to pinching, and can require downtime or expensive maintenance.

Troublesome seal installation can be frustrating, expensive, and time consuming.

Common axial installation solutions are focused on the following benefits:

• Retention

• Custom Plan Views / Race Track Grooves

• Consolidating Seals
