Enercam Seal

Enhanced Seal Performance

“CAMMED” DESIGN ENHANCES SEAL PERFORMANCE

Greene, Tweed’s Enercam (patent pending) seal was developed for extremely demanding flight control environments but is also an outstanding choice in a wide variety of applications where superior leakage control and durability are critical. Available for use in either one or two back-up gland widths, this unique design utilizes our Avalon® PTFE sealing element coupled with a high modulus, angled, anti-extrusion, back-up ring and a specially designed, elastomeric energizer. This “cammed” cap element works with a sophisticated energizer to provide uniformly distributed loads around the entire seal circumference, thereby transmitting optimal sealing forces to the cap element. Full, integrated, circumferential grooves in the cap provide for improved seal lubrication that can enhance overall functional seal performance.

Features & Benefits

  • A unidirectional, hydro-mechanically activated, cam-type design provides optimum sealing performance and long service life
  • Resilient Avalon cap coupled with a durable elastomeric energizer plus a high modulus, anti-extrusion back-up ring uniformly distributes loads
  • Installable into most existing AS4716 configurations

APPLICATIONS

  • Primary and secondary flight control actuators
  • As a secondary seal for tandem, “closed-groove,” rod configurations
  • Fuel systems
  • Utility actuators
  • Door actuators
