T-seals offer an excellent sealing solution for static or reciprocating dynamic applications. T-seals can be designed to retro fit into existing O-ring grooves (both piston and rod orientations) or optimized for specific application requirements.
T-seals comprise of an elastomer T-shaped cross section and two backup rings made from an engineering grade plastic, often PTFE or PEEK.
The use of the backup rings allows the T-seal to be used in high pressure applications whilst still maintaining high sealing efficiency at low pressures. The design of the T-seal uses the system pressure to actively energize the backup rings, ensuring efficient extrusion resistance in single and bi-directional pressure applications, both in static and dynamic conditions.
Installation procedures for T-seals are often simplified over other seal designs due to their symmetrical geometry.
As an alternative to T-seals, PPE also manufactures spring seals (sometimes referred to as all-in-one T-seals).

PPE offers a comprehensive design and modelling service for seals, custom moulded elastomers and bonded components.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used to predict contact forces, deformation and stress levels within elastomer components to simulate how they will perform in real-life applications.
