Vacuum Seals

As technology advances, the requirements placed on today’s vacuum equipment manufacturers become more and more challenging. Today’s pumps and boosters must operate more efficiently in evermore challenging conditions — lower friction, deeper vacuum, wider temperature range, faster speeds — all the while operating under conditions that offer a  much less lubricating effect.

Here at American High Performance Seals, we are working with vacuum equipment manufacturers that are meeting these challenges head on and helping them to meet their performance goals.

For many years, we have been developing and testing seals in house to meet the new challenges that we anticipate the industry will encounter.

These pumps and booster mixers are used in a wide range of markets:
  • Metallurgy
  • Coating
  • Leak detection
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Lightbulb manufacturing
  • Filling machinery
  • Medical
  • PET processing
  • Chucking and holding
Examples of equipment types sealed:
  • Compressors
  • Rotary vane Vacuum pumps
  • UHV pumping systems
  • Liquid rings
  • Rotary piston vacuum pumps
  • Screw type vacuum pumps

With a wide range of standard materials and specially developed compounds, our engineers have a solid platform from which to design the optimum seal for your specific needs.  All designs are reviewed by an engineer with over 25 years of experience in the sealing Industry, and each design can be discussed directly with the seal engineer.
