Versatility of inflatable seals

Inflatable seal applications

Inflatable seals are used in a wide variety of industrial applications, solving difficulties that are hard to solve by compression seals.


LIKON inflatable homogeneous elastomeric seals are used for sealing in all sorts of applications. The shape allows for different ways of expansion. Please contact us for technical assistance and available solutions.



  • easy removal to allow for quick CIP cleaning
