Fabric Reinforced Inflatable Seals
Inflatable seals with small outside diameters may end up wrinkling with this kind of expansion. Seals expanding radially inward have Air Inlet Valves(AIV) typically installed into a channel with the outside diameter (OD).
Circular seals are mostly preferred for sealing manhole covers, hopper seals or in industrial machinery like fluidized bed dryers & autoclaves; wherein the machines are made in circular dimensions.
Inflatable seals with straight configurations are most commonly found in clamps and actuators. Straight seals have vulcanized ends that do not expand. Western Rubbers’ also provides retention mechanisms for straight seals.
U shaped seals are a common configuration in inflatable gate seals. Ends of u-shaped seals are vulcanized & hence cannot inflate. Appropriate retention mechanisms for this configuration is available at Western Rubbers.
