Greene, Tweed’s Glidetec™ O-ring energized cap seal offers simplicity and low cost. Suitable for use in spool valves or where AS or MIL spec grooves are not required, the Glidetec seal consists of a low cost energizer and a heavy section cap. The Glidetec seal offers bidirectional sealing, low friction and easy installation in compact single-piece glands.
The Glidetec seal combines a cap typically made from our Avalon (PTFE) material with an industry standard elastomeric energizer. Greene, Tweed can also easily design O-rings and caps to fit custom nonstandard gland sizes.
Note: See dimensional tables for GT standard gland sizes.
Glidetec seals can be supplied with notches to optimize pressure response, in accordance with SAE AIR 1243. The piston designs typically have notched caps since they are bidirectional; rod types are typically unnotched.
