Quad seals are four lipped seals with a specially developed sealing profile that actually provides twice the number of sealing surfaces as an O-Ring.
Application & Usage
The four lobed seal design not only provides lower friction than an O-Ring, but also, due to its square cross section, it resists spiral twist. ` Quad seals can be used for Static and Dynamic applications.
Static Application:In this type of application Quad seals are fitted in the assembly where there is no dynamic movement.
Dynamic Application: With a dynamic sealing configuration, quad seal in an internal groove should be stretched over the root of the groove. With external grooves, Quad seal is installed in compressed state.
