The seal in this application was required to pass two leakage tests— helium leakage could not exceed 10 cc/sec, and when sealing water, the seal had to be drop-free. Low friction was also required.
In this application the flanged Turcon® Variseal® FW was used to effectively eliminate leakage across the O.D., while the medium spring provided the correct load to achieve a balance between friction and sealability.
