Custom Seal Design

Amsted Seals and Forming individually designs and optimizes seals for your precise application. Custom seals take approximately 7 days to design, cost the same as standard seal designs, and last approximately 7-10 times longer.

Broad array of precision sealing solutions

Our engineering and manufacturing capabilities allow for a wide variety of seal types to be custom designed and made to the tightest tolerances and most exacting specifications.

144-point seal engineering process

We thoroughly analyze every operational variable to ensure maximum reliability and performance in even the harshest operating environments. Our 144-point process includes:

  • Case design
  • Beam length
  • Flex thickness
  • Spring position
  • Spring tension
  • Head height
  • Interference
  • Contact width
  • Primary and secondary lip geometry

Materials

Engineering the right solution for a specific application starts with choosing the proper materials. We utilize a range of materials so that we can ensure every seal is optimized for whatever operating environment it will be exposed to.

  • Stainless Steels
  • Polymers
  • Nitrile NBR
  • Saturated Nitrile HNBR
  • Poly Acrylic
  • Silicone
  • Fluoroelastomer

Validation testing

Because there is no governing body that specifies seal validation requirements, you need a seal supplier you can trust to use only the best materials and produce the most reliable seals for your application. Our testing capabilities include compound immersion testing for rubber validation and a wide variety of customer-specific, functional rig tests on actual seals.
