Shapes, expansion, connections of inflatable seals

Inflatable seal shapes

  1. rings
  2. straight seals .. (All cross sections)
  3. U-frames ……… (IFS# 2 / IFS# 3 / IFS# 4, IFS# 84, IFS# 408 / IFS# 411)
  4. frames …………. (IFS# 2 / IFS# 3 / IFS# 4, IFS# 84, IFS# 408 / IFS# 411)
  5. bespoke shapes

Preshaped corners – LIKON offers preshaped corners to allow for the use of sections bend in tighter radii than normally possible.

 

Types of expansion

Depending on the shape of the seal and the position of the valve position inflatable seal can expand in different directions and planes.
