TRRI Series Rotary Rod Seal
The TRRI rotary rod seal is a proven reliable seal for both low and high pressure systems. It is a double-acting filled T-LON® PTFE compound with an o-ring elastomer energizer offering premium sealability in slow rotating or oscillating applications. The filled PTFE seal ring is manufactured with an interference fit with the rod and optimum compression with the o-ring energizer. This offers excellent sealability at low pressures and high pressures when the housing cylinder experiences ballooning.
Face Grooves (Optional):
For applications of high pressure rise rates, pressure spikes, and rapid change of direction, the seal is apt to experience blow-by. To prevent blow-by and to energize the seal rapidly, face grooves are added to both sides of the seal.
Preventing O-ring Slippage:
The TRRI PTFE rings come standard with “T-Notches” on the surface in contact with the o-ring. This helps resist slip between the PTFE sealing ring and the elastomer o-ring. Consult T-LON for other available proven options to resist slip.
